This walking tour describing historic buildings along the streets of Waterbury, begins at the home of Army Civil War surgeon Dr. Henry Janes, who was on the platform at Gettysburg when President Lincoln gave the Gettysburg address. Walking south along the former Winooski Turnpike, now Main Street, the tour includes the story of historic buildings along the way that contributed to the development of Waterbury. Some of the buildings include a former Stage Coach Inn, an historic business district rebuild after a massive fire in 1879, an original fire house and jail, the 1875 Railroad station and public park. The tour takes about an hour, covers about a mile along Waterbury streets, and concludes on Stowe Street.
