Take a guided history stroll at Mt. Independence

ORWELL — Hike into history at the Mount Independence State Historic Site in Orwell on Sunday, Aug. 4. The site offers a special guided walk around the trail system, from 2 to 4 p.m., led by Mount Independence Coalition president Stephen Zeoli. It is included in regular site admission of $5 for adults and free for those under 15. 
Stephen Zeoli is known for his story-telling and special knowledge. He will relate the stirring story of Mount Independence and its important role in the American Revolution and in the making of our nation. It was built as an American defense of New England against the British in 1776-77, and then occupied by the British and Germans from July to November 1777. 
Zeoli is a former caretaker at the site, an editor of the Coalition’s recent book, “Strong Ground: Mount Independence and the American Revolution,” and author of the short book, “Mount Independence: The Enduring Legacy of a Unique Place.” Wear sturdy shoes, bring water, and dress for the weather.
