A message from Barb Evans, architectural walking tour guide: "Saturday and Sunday I'll be leading walking tours of Northfield's Historic Downtown. Meet me in Bridge Square at 2:00 for the tour. Tours last about 90 minutes with little or no areas for sitting. We will try to find some shade, but expect to be in the sun for much of that time. Wear comfortable shoes and bring your own water. Northfield's Historic Downtown buildings have stories to tell. Hear those stories and look at architectural features with me this weekend."Tour price is $10 per person. ... See MoreSee Less
