The video follows Nicholson from the top of the Avenue down to Steamboat Road as he explains important landmarks that existed at the time and events along the way.
A local historian and lifetime resident, Nicholson (1915-2004) was well-known for his famous walks in Greenwich, known as "Walk With a Friend," which he used to educate people about the Town's history. He was the driving force in designating the Fourth Ward a historical district.
Nicholson was a Latin and French teacher at Greenwich Country Day School for 27 years. He was narrator of the well-known Oral History Project's transcript "Growing up on Lewis Street in the 1920s." Frank's wife, Marion, a librarian, helped build the local history collections at both the Library and Historical Society of the Town of Greenwich.
The program is free and open to all. For more information, please call Carl White at 622-7948.
