Goosetown Walking Tour 2021 in Chillicothe, Ohio
September 26 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until September 26, 2021
Enjoy an Oktoberfest “Goosetown” walking tour by Kevin Coleman on the afternoons of Sunday, September 19th and 26th, 2021.
Learn about many aspects of Chillicothe’s working-class German neighborhood named after the residents’ floating livestock.
You’ll see and hear about workers’ cottages with scherenschnitte attic vents and a Romanesque butcher’s castle…canal and railroad superhighways…Camp Bull and Camp Sherman…a carriage factory and an 1890s scandal-sheet newspaper…Worthington’s Addition and Franklinton Pike…Limestone Road, Wharf Street, Angle Alley, Camp Sherman Road…potted chrysanthemums to state forests…and more!
The approximately hour-and-a-half tour starts 2pm Sunday, September 19th and 26th, 2021. It starts and ends at Springdale Garden Center at 533 North High Street in Chillicothe, Ohio, with parking in front and more in back.
It will be $10 for adults, $5 for students, and $15 for families (three or more family members including children). Pay “at the door” with cash or check.
The Goosetown tour will be on level sidewalks and a few alleys, crossing several streets, and limited to about 25 attendees for safety and practicality.
If the weather is more than a light rain or too cold for a medium jacket, I can notify everyone who has contacted me that it is postponed or cancelled.
