Bicentennial of Lafayette’s Farewell Tour Visits Norwalk, CT
August 20 All day
On August 20, 1824, Lafayette was escorted across the Byram River from New York into
Connecticut where, that evening, he was welcomed at a reception at the Norwalk Hotel. Two
hundred years later the Norwalk Historical Society will once again welcome Lafayette to
Norwalk with a reception at the Town House Museum at Historic Mill Hill Park, only a few steps
from the site where Lafayette stopped at the Norwalk Hotel in 1824. Join us for refreshments,
view our Lafayette in Norwalk exhibit, and meet the General himself!
As this event is still in the planning stages, please check back regularly for details.
