Travel back in time as you join Village Preservation in Washington Square Park for a guided walking tour filled with activities for the whole family. Learn about the original inhabitants of the land and how Washington Square Park was developed. Put on your detective hat and search out clues to help tell the history of the area, concluding with an architectural scavenger hunt at the Washington Square Arch.

This tour will be led by Village Preservation Educator Terri Daly. Terri has taught lessons and led tours as part of Village Preservation’s Children’s Education program since 2021. Prior to this, Terri was the Director of the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden on East 61st Street where for seventeen years she led and taught the Museum’s K-12 education programs on the history of New York City in the 19th century.
