Historic Wilbraham: Chapel and Maple Streets

Welcome to the third local history tour of Wilbraham! This loop explores a neighborhood that developed as a result of the economic growth fueled by the mills built in North Wilbraham during the 19th century.


You are welcome to park your car in the parking lot of Grace Union Church at 10 Chapel Street, the starting and ending point of this half-mile walk. As with the other Wilbraham tours, this is an exterior tour with no building access except as noted.
