Guided Walking Tours by Middlebury Then and Now

Giant Toadstools and the World's Fair

Take a guided tour through living history!  The Krider family of Middlebury once captured the imagination of the  world.  This tour of the park that bears their name opens a window to the family's nursery at the height of its creative powers.  The natural beauty will take your breath away.  You may even spot a giant toadstool.  This tour is great for kids so grab the family and the camera; there are plenty of opportunities for fun selfies.  Proceeds are donated to the Middlebury Park Department to be used for further improvements to Krider Gardens.   

Meet at the Middlebury Community Historical Museum, 301 W Bristol Ave

Trip Tip:  Take some time to explore the Middlebury Community Historical Museum to learn more about Middlebury's historic past.
