Our day begins at the Walden Church in Noyesville Village to register and pick up a Walden packet. Our tours this year are self-led, OPEN VISITATION, boldly marked with introduction information in the packet. All over town, Walden residents are inviting you to see how they make a living or supplement their income by working or crafting in their homes, fields and studios. Spots for foliage viewing are also listed where we couldn’t take tour groups before. Our Barbecued Beef Supper, previously served family style will be take-out. The menu is the same: luscious, open-spit barbecued beef, mashed potato & gravy, veggies, roll & butter, beverage and home-baked pumpkin or apple pie. $15/A, plus child rate.
