Stroll through the historical center of Fairhaven, which developed between the 1760s and the 1890s as a bustling town where Yankee sea captains, business people, and hardworking farming families lived side by side as the village evolved from being an early colonial settlement to a vibrant part of a growing country. Hear some of the most interesting stories, legends, and the truth behind a few whispered rumors in this “Small Town with a Big History.” It is held weather permitting. No reservations are required.
