About this event

Did you ever wonder what all that “stuff” is placed around the grounds at Ringwood Manor? What about all those other buildings on the property? What were they used for? If you have ever been curious about the estate at Ringwood Manor, this tour is for you! These 2 hour guided walking tours will take visitors around the main property at Ringwood Manor, discussing the historic objects, the planned gardens and landscape features, and the out-buildings. Historic photographs of the property will also be shown.

Offered on select Saturdays & Sundays at 10:30am each day.

Tour is FREE. State Park parking fee for entrance to park still applies: $5 for in-state residents & $7 for out-of-state residents. Tours limited to 20 people. Steady rain cancels. Advanced registration through Eventbrite highly encouraged. Walkups will be permitted if space allows.

In registering for this history program, you agree to maintain social distancing protocols (to the extent possible) from individuals attending the program that are not within your family/party.

If you are feeling ill the day of your registered program, please do not attend.

It is highly recommended that participants wear sturdy walking shoes, weather appropriate clothing, and may wish to use sunscreen or bug spray. Also, while we love having dogs in the park, we do not allow them on the walking tours as we cannot anticipate if another attendee has serious allergies or phobias. We apologize for any inconvenience.
