Featured Education Project

Townsend Heritage Walking Tour

In 2013, The Preservation Collaborative gave two programs in Townsend. Each program focused on one major town industry and how the surrounding neighborhood developed. Townsend Harbor was home to the Spaulding Brothers tannery. The Fessenden Hill area was home to the Fessenden Cooperage. Both have since disappeared on the landscape. Their memory is in the two sucessful walking tours we lead. They were attended by residents who both remembered, or had never heard of such places, leading to a memorable discussion among everyone involved.
