Downtown Heritage Walking Tours Return
The Oliver & District Heritage Society is restarting its popular Downtown Heritage Walking Tours from July 16th to August 27th. The guided tours, which run every Friday at 10:00 am for the rest of the summer, will cover the history of Oliver’s historic buildings and landmarks, from the CPR Station to portions of the Ditch. Tours will be safely led by the ODHS’ summer student guides and will take approximately 45 minutes.
All tours start from the Oliver Visitor Centre and finish at the Museum at 474 School Avenue. Participants are asked to bring appropriate footwear and dress for the weather, as tours run rain or shine. Each tour covers approximately 1.5 km. Sunscreen and water are encouraged.
Participants are encouraged to register in advance, as group size limits are in place. Sign up is on the ODHS website at www.oliverheritage.ca.
And, as a special offering during the One Hundred X One Hundred celebration, two additional tours will take place on Saturday, Aug. 14th and Wednesday, Aug. 18th at 10:00 am. Both tours will start from the Oliver Visitor Centre. This is a great alternative for those who can’t make the Friday tours. Register today!
