A 30-minute video was created in May 2020 to help replace the live tours while they cannot be held.

 

This 90-minute walk outlines the life of Standard Oil Co. executive Henry H. Rogers and the magnificent public buildings that he donated to his hometown. You’ll walk through the village area where one of the nation’s most powerful businessmen grew up while you learn about his boyhood, rise to riches, and the gifts he bestowed on Fairhaven. The tour includes visits inside the Millicent Library and the Town Hall. It is held weather permitting. Free.

With advance arrangements, this tour can also be booked at other times for groups of twelve or more people, as the tour guides’ schedules allow. For more information, call or email the Office of Tourism, 508-979-4085, [email protected].
