HENRY’S WATERMELON PARTY!

Henry Thoreau was known to have grown the sweetest, juiciest watermelons in Concord. Every year, he shared his harvest with friends and family. As we continue this tradition, enjoy a slice of melon with historian Richard Smith who will portray Thoreau at the Thoreau house replica. The replica is located next to the parking lot. This program is for visitors of all ages.

The daily parking fee is $5.00 per vehicle. For more information, please call (978) 369-3254.

Sponsored by the Friends of Walden Pond, an activity of the Thoreau Society.
