This tour is a walk around one of the most important locations in New Brunswick. New Brunswick is a unique city home to Rutgers University and a population of 55,000 , there is no doubt that the city has played a huge role in the history of New Jersey. The tour will take you to locations that still stand today such as the New Brunswick Train Station and to places that no longer exists like the Bayard Street School. Along the way we have included important events and people that have occured or lived near the location to give the walking tourist as many perspectives as possible. Along the way we have included questions to help you reflect on the information presented to you and to help you better understand the story behind each location.
The significance of this walking tour is not only to inform New Brunswick tourist but also natives who may not know the important role that the city has played in New Jersey history. Knowing the history of a city enriches it's community and gives life to everyday places or everyday people who's contribution have been forgotten.
