Sites on the History Walk

On the Proctor History Walk, you will visit numerous sites of historical significance. These places were used as cornerstones in the creation of the Proctor community and largely shaped the lives of the people who encountered them. Fortunately, many of the referenced historical structures are still standing. For those that no longer exist, online photos can assist as a memorial of their impact on the community and, combined with signs on-location, can offer insight into their importance. For geographic reference, these places are highlighted and expounded upon in the map and text below to maintain the ongoing memory of their place in the Proctor community.
