This shortened “pandemic-friendly’ walk outlines the life of Standard Oil Co. executive Henry H. Rogers and the magnificent public buildings that he donated to his hometown. You’ll stop at several “off-the-sidewalk” spots in the village area where one of the nation’s most powerful businessmen grew up while you learn about his boyhood, rise to riches, and the gifts he bestowed on Fairhaven. The tour will not go inside any buildings this season. It is held weather permitting. Free.
Tuesday tours guided by Bob Foster. Thursday tours guided by Chris Richard.
