Abstract

An article on Thomaston's "Museum in the Streets," a bilingual, self-guiding two-mile tour that leads walkers along Main and Knox streets, both of which are on the National Historic Register. It is the first such walking tour in the nation and uses 25 plaques with description and vintage photos to recreate the pasts of various properties, including a toll bridge. Patrick Cordon of Cushing, a former museum administrator, developed the concept and owns the trademark to the concept. He has created five similar walking tours in France.
