ROXBURY — The Roxbury Historic District Commission and the Friends of the Roxbury Library (aka The Next Chapter) will host their Historic Walking Tour of about 35 buildings on Saturday, Oct. 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the last tour leaving at 3 p.m.
Docents (some of whom are currently residing in the homes) will take groups of about 10 around the historic district, describing facts about the people who lived in these homes — some dating from 1740. A tour book prepared recently by a historian will be available with facts and pictures for $20. The homes are viewed only from the outside. The rain date is Oct. 17.
