Guided Walk- Copper Works

February 23, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Join us for a fascinating guided walk through the historic Copper Works site in Norton, MA. Our knowledgeable guide Ellenor Simmons will lead us along a canal by the Wading River sharing stories and insights about the area, vegetation, and wildlife, stopping to view a pond and remains from the copper refining industry. The copper works once rivaled Paul Revere’s own refining practice. Later in 1837, pennies from the US Mint were made here.

This event offers a unique opportunity to explore the remnants of this once-thriving copper manufacturing site that contributed to the early pollution of the Taunton River.

Sturdy footwear recommended. Pups welcomed on leash. No restrooms available.

Ellenor brings 32 years of state parks experience to TRWA as a former Southcoast Field Operations Team Leader and park supervisor with the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation. In her retirement, she enjoys leading walks and volunteering with our Diamondback Terrapin Population Research Project
