Perambulation of Carlisle’s Boundaries (Spring 2024)
Join us for a walk to Carlisle’s granite boundary markers. Perambulation is an old English custom that involves walking the geographic boundaries of a town to maintain a memory of the precise location of its boundary markers. It was once practiced by most New England states, including Massachusetts, in which it was a duty of civic leaders. Today, modern surveying techniques make perambulation unnecessary, but the walk remains as a fun, ceremonial practice for town residents.
