As an extension of the lecture on Pelham Bay Park during World War I given in August 2017, this walking tour explores the environs of the World War I Naval Training Station, now on present-day Rodman’s Neck. Since visiting the original site is prohibited to the public, Educator Vivian Davis will guide visitors around the southern end of the park, describing how it looked one hundred years ago.

This walking tour is part of The Bronx during World War I Centennial series.
