Memorial Day presents an opportunity to combine Granby’s iconic Memorial Day parade with the return of Stroll Through Granby History.
The prize-winning Stroll from October 2020 will be back from May 28 through June 25. The 35 signs will again be on lawns on Salmon Brook Street from the town green to just south of the Salmon Brook Historical Society campus at 208 Salmon Brook Street.
The temporary signs include a picture of the earlier houses and a QR code that provides a link to the stories about the people who lived there. Before you begin the Stroll, you will need a QR Code Reader on your phone or tablet. The no-cost app is available at the App Store on your device.
This interactive opportunity is fun for all ages. Granby residents are fortunate because the Salmon Brook Historical Society archivist, Carol Laun, has been researching and writing about Granby residents for more than 40 years. The stories she has gathered range from being dreadfully sad to hilarious. And now those stories are “on the street.” All the information, as well as a map for the Stroll, is available at salmonbrookhistoricalsociety.com
