Voices from the Past is a unique way to learn about Westfield’s history through the lives of former citizens. Attendees will be guided on a journey into the past through the Anti-Slavery Cemetery in Asa Bales Park and Old Friends Cemetery Park, where they will be met by Westfield Playhouse actors portraying locals with interesting stories to tell. See history come alive at this interactive and educational event, hosted by the Westfield in Bloom Heritage Committee and Westfield Washington Historical Society.
With the success of the event’s inaugural year in 2011, Voices from the Past will be expanded to a two day event this weekend. In a partnership with Westfield Washington Schools, we are pleased to announce that we will be offering four tours Friday, which are specifically available to families of WWS students, and tickets are just $10 per family. Tours will also be offered to the general public on Saturday for $10 for adults, $5 for students with children 12 and under not charged.
Tours will last 90 minutes with approximately 35 minutes of walking. Tours leave every 10 minutes from 6 to 6:30 p.m. Friday and 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday. The tours will begin at the east entrance to Asa Bales Park, located at 211 North Union Street, across from City Hall.
