Corn Hill History Walk with Jay Vivian

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
$10.00

Ever wonder why Corn Hill is called that?  Go for a walk there to find out, and a lot more.  It's 2 miles, about half on a quiet road, half on a sandy path.  Amateur local historian Jay Vivian leads, making occasional stops to describe various historical events that occurred within a mile or two of Corn Hill, most of them quoting from original primary documents.  They include the first European summer vacation in Truro (1603!), the loss of many of Truro's men at sea in the early 1800s, Margaret Sanger's house on the Pamet (1917), the completion of the train line to Ptown (1873), an explanation of why 1751 and 1752 both had fewer than 365 days, the inter-war German glider school on Corn Hill (1928), and yes, the Pilgrims' theft of the Payomet Indians' seed corn in 1620.
