RYE – The Rye Historical Society will sponsor itssecond Rye History Trolley Tour of the summer from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Thursday, July 4.
The tour, with ongoing historical narration, will proceed down Central Road to Ocean Boulevard, to Rye Harbor, and back to the museum via Harbor and Locke Roads, with four stops along the way. The first stop is St. Andrews-By-The-Sea Chapel, which has several historic stained-glass windows, including two by Tiffany and one dedicated to long time parishioner?and church secretary Ogden Nash. Riders will also visit the lobby of The Drake House, one of the grand hotels of the Victorian era.
