Guild Square Walking Tour, Wednesday, June 27th at 6:30 pm.
Continuing our annual series of neighborhood tours, this event features the Guild Square and Environs. The tour will provide background on historic structures like the Post Office, Norwood Hospital, and Morrill Memorial Library. We will evoke shared memories of the Aaron Guild School and the Guild Square Bandstand.
The group will gather at the First Congregational Church at 100 Winter Street, where there is ample parking space. Participants will walk down to Guild Square by the Post Office, and circle back on Washington Street. The tour will conclude with light refreshments at the Congregational Church's Pingree Hall.
No tickets are necessary for this free event!

Honoring a Norwood Veteran, Sunday July 1st at 1pm.
The Norwood Historical Society joins with the Quilt of Valor Foundation for a special event. Chief Petty Officer, Patricia Tibaudo served in the US Navy Reserves for over 30 years including three deployments, and she is the first and only female Commander of post 697. We are thrilled to present her with a Quilt of Valor, hand made by a volunteer, as a way to say "Thank you for your service, sacrifice, and valor" in serving our nation in combat. Massachusetts state coordinator Theresa Perreault will be on hand at this presentation ceremony to discuss the work of the Quilt of Valor Foundation, and we hope that you will also join us to begin the 4th of July weekend in patriotic style!
