Get Inspired!

The 1.8-mile route will take you by some of New London's historic and community landmarks.

You'll get a sheet to have stamped at places along the way, and take in a variety of performances.


Groups will include The Raging Grannies and are returning for an encore performance of their provocative songs too!

Here's a sampling of some of the stops:

St. Francis House

Members of St. Francis House were the motivating force behind the founding the Homeless Hospitality Center in 2006. They continue to work on initiatives on homelessness, education, peace witness, anti-racism, food policy, youth empowerment and more.

Williams Memorial Park Historic District

The park at the corner of Hempstead and Broad is the center of a neighborhood of Victorian homes. 

Vet House

This house on Mountain Avenue offers transitional housing to eight U.S. veterans coming out of homelessness. It is managed by HHC through the Veterans Administration. 

Hempsted Houses

Built in 1678, the Joshua Hempsted House is the oldest in New London. The adjacent Nathaniel Hempsted House dates to 1759.
