Available year-round, tours are especially fun when taken during one of our special annual events (see Events Calendar). Such a walking tour would meander through the Historic District and may enter several historical buildings. The Grand Historical Tour is presented in the Tour Map Guide brochure, complete with a map and historical notations focusing on the historical significance of certain sites and buildings, and the prominence of past residents. Tours of varying lengths geared to a range of Special Interests are ready here on our website. To select yours, click on:
