Museum hosts walking tours of K’bunk Beach

The Brick Store Museum has announced its schedule for this year’s Walking Tours of Historic Kennebunk Beach.

The tours depart from Trinity Chapel at 2 p.m. on Thursdays. Participants can meet their museum guide at Trinity Chapel on the corner of Railroad Avenue and Woodland Avenue.

The walking tour includes a history of the development of the beach, anecdotes about some of the characters and luminaries who have contributed to the rich history of the beach and highlights of the unique architecture of the beach cottages.

The walk includes stops at 12 locations; the tour lasts about 90 minutes and covers less than a mile on flat road. The walks will be conducted rain or shine.

Tickets can be purchased with cash or check on-site, or via credit card online at www.brickstoremuseum.org/beachwalkingtours.

The Brick Store Museum will continue to run weekly walking tours of Mother’s Beach through the end of September.

Join a guide for a walk and count over 2,000 steps of exercise for the day. Check the museum’s website at www.brickstoremuseum.org for updated information in case of unexpected cancellation.

The Brick Store Museum is located at 117 Main St. in Kennebunk’s historic district.
