Free Sparta Walking Tour

Historic Sparta Walking Tours are conducted throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall. 
From April through October, the Jug Tavern will conduct monthly walking tours of the historic Sparta neighborhood at the south end of Ossining. Dr. Alan Stahl, a neighborhood resident and former president of the Jug Tavern, who teaches in the history department of Princeton University, will lead the tours.

Each tour will begin at the Jug Tavern (Rockledge Avenue and Revolutionary Road, behind the CVS) at 1 p.m. with a showing of the video “The Battle for Sparta.” Participants will then walk about six blocks through the neighborhood, learning about the historic homes and residents over the past 200 years; the tour will end at around 3 p.m. 

The following are Sunday tour dates scheduled for 2019:

  • Sunday, April 7th, 1 pm
  • Sunday, May 5th, 1pm
  • Future dates for 2019 TBD
