Along Manhasset Bay Historical Walking Tour
Announcing the debut of the Along Manhasset Bay walking tour of Port Washington along Manhasset Bay, from Inspiration Wharf to Shore Road. Brought to you by the History Center at the Port Washington Public Library.
The Along Manhasset Bay historical walking tour app allows users to explore the rich history of the town of Port Washington and its waterfront at their own pace, either alone or with a group. The free app, which can be downloaded on any smartphone (Android or iPhone) utilizes GPS technology to pinpoint the user’s location and provides location-specific history via text, audio narration, and historical photographs from the History Center’s collections at each stop. This project is made possible by a generous gift from the Virginia Marshall Martus Estate.
The walking tour is a companion to the 2020 book Along Manhasset Bay, the tenth installment in our Local History Center publication series. Celebrating long lost maritime traditions along with lesser-known histories of the Bay, the book features excerpts from the Local History Center’s vast collection of oral histories. Available for purchase on Amazon and the PWPL Local History Bookstore.
