Local historian Joanne Doucette leads a Jane’s Walk this Saturday May 7, in celebration of the Craven Road fence’s 100th anniversary.
Titled “Erie Terrace to Craven Road: Tiny Houses, Tall Tales and a 100-Year Fence,” the walk will begin near the foot of the road, and will travel northward through the ages to finish at Danforth Avenue.
