Along Manhasset Bay Historical Walking Tour

Announcing the debut of the Along Manhasset Bay historical walking tour of Port Washington along Manhasset Bay, from Inspiration Wharf to Shore Road. Brought to you by the PWPL Local History Center.

The Port Washington Historical walking tour app allows users to explore the rich history of the town of Port Washington 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 provide location-specific oral history clips, photographs, and text (in multiple languages). This project is made possible by a generous gift from the Virginia Marshall Martus Estate. 

The walking tour is a companion to last year’s publication, 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
