Museum of Bronx History, walking tours by Bronx Historical Society offer glimpse into borough’s historyPosted: Updated:
The Bronx is known for its diversity, culture and Yankee Stadium, but the borough also has a rich history.
The Museum of Bronx History on Bainbridge Avenue offers a glimpse into the borough's past. The landmark dates back to the 1700s, and was the Valentine Varian house, which was used as a fortress during the American Revolutionary War.
The Bronx County Historical Society also offers walking tours between $10 to $15 about three times a month.
The tours give residents a chance to visit historic landmarks and learn about local neighborhoods and how they made their mark in history.
The Bronx Historical Society will be hosting a walking tour of Marble Hill late next month.
Organizers say the public can expect to see lots of eye-catching architecture and a fascinating story about the Kingsbridge Armory.
