The Walker Wheels Base Ball Club
Walker Tavern Historic Site
The Walker Wheels Base Ball Club is a team that plays baseball the way it was played in the 1860s - when the game was still new and spelled as two words. The ball diamond is located just off the parking lot. You are welcome to bring a blanket or chair for your comfort while watching the game. Pack a picnic lunch or come early to make a tasty purchase at the Walker Tavern Historic Site Farmers Market on the two dates starred below.
