Rye History Trolley Tour Sponsored by Partners Bank
The tour, with ongoing historical narration, will proceed down Central Road to Ocean Boulevard, to Rye Harbor, and back to the museum via Harbor and Locke Roads, with four stops along the way. The first stop is St. Andrews-By-The-Sea Chapel, which has several historic stained-glass windows, including two by Tiffany and one dedicated to long-time parishioner and church secretary Ogden Nash. Riders will also visit the lobby of The Drake House, once one of the grand hotels in town. Other stops will be at Rye Harbor, an active fishing port; and Goss Barn, which was restored by the town. This English Style barn was converted into the traditional Yankee Barn in the late 1800s. The tour will end at The Rye Town Museum. Proceeds support the museum, which will be open before and after the tour.
