In 2019, Historic Chatham introduced a very successful bus tour of Chatham on History Weekend. This year, a similar but expanded tour goes virtual.

Tour Schedule: The virtual tour will depart from Depot Rd. next to the Chatham Railroad Museum. The tour will make an approximately 90-minute circuit around Historic Chatham, with tour guide narration and stops at the following locations, where a local guide from the museum / site will join the virtual tour for a brief introduction to each site, with visuals.
  • Eldredge Public Library
  • Chatham Conservation Foundation's Mayo House
  • Chatham Godfrey Windmill
  • Atwood Museum
  • Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge
  • Chatham Lighthouse
  • Marconi-RCA Wireless Museum
  • Nickerson Family Association's Caleb Nickerson House
  • Chatham Railroad Museum
In addition, the tour route will pass by other historic sites, including the Atwood School, the Champlain Monument, and a variety of less-well-known hidden gem historic locations in the town.

Note: This is a guided Virtual tour around the town, not a real bus tour, and definitely not a hop-on/hop-off bus.
