Join historian Michael Bielawa, author of Wicked Bridgeport (pub. 2012) and Wicked New Haven (pub. 2013), to hear the strange and fascinating tales of Bridgeport's past as you stroll through the historic downtown area. Focusing on Bridgeport’s magnificent historic sites, the 90-minute program will explore the intrigue and mysteries of the City’s 19th-century places and people. Tour starts at The Barnum Museum, 820 Main Street. Please enter at the rear of the historic building (follow signs around to the back to enter the Peoples United Bank Gallery); plan to arrive at 6:30 as the group will head out no later than 6:45 for approximately a one-hour tour. Afterwards, return to the Museum for cider; the author will be available to sign and sell books after the tour. On-street parking is free after 6 pm.
