Discover WRJ Through the Stories of the People Who Make it What it is
I recently spent some time wandering around White River Junction collecting stories from some of the wonderful people who’ve helped make WRJ what it is. I spoke with artists in the Tip Top building, an architect turned chef, the curator of a weird and wild museum and a host of other individuals who call WRJ home.
The more people I spoke with, the more I came to appreciate the vast number of interesting stories that are scattered throughout the Upper Valley. Stories that provide a glimpse back in time at a street that has transformed completely. Stories that give insight into the inspiration behind a nearby statue, a painting on display and the fledgling business around the corner.
This weekend, take some time and get to know WRJ the way I have. Follow this self guided walking tour (note this is a deeplink to content in an app so you'll need to open it using your phone) and as you visit each stop, listen to some of the stories that have been shared there. Take the time to linger and explore what each spot has to offer. Most importantly, take the time to start up a discussion with the people around you and see what other stories you can unearth.
If you have suggestions for other stories worth sharing in the Upper Valley, let me know!
