Member Event: Nahant Walking Tour. Enjoy a two-hour walking tour of Nahant led by Ken Turino

Date: May 14, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Cost: Free

Enjoy a two-hour walking tour of Nahant led by Ken Turino, President of The Gables’ Board of Directors.

Nahant, the smallest municipality in Massachusetts at only 1.4 sq. miles on two islands, makes up for its size with its rich history. Originally part of Lynn, it became independent in 1853 over “cocktails”. Did you know, Nahant and Nahant Beach are mentioned several times in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s short story, “The Village Uncle” from Twice-Told Tales?

On this tour, members will see the homes of prominent citizens, amazing ocean views, and learn about the lighthouse which once stood on Egg Rock. The history of East Point as the site of a resort hotel, a family estate, and as a military coastal defense installation, complete with Nike missiles, will be discussed. This event is free to all Gables members.
