During this outing we will learn about two important, and very different, mid-19th century Essex County families and businesses: the law practice of Augustus C. Hand in Elizabethtown and the bluestone quarry of Solomon Clark on Willsboro Point. Their stories will come to life through their homes, the Hand House and Scragwood.

The tour begins at 10 a.m. and ends around 4 p.m.

FEE: $35 for AARCH members and $45 for non-members
