Goosetown Walking Tour 2022 in Chillicothe, Ohio
October 1, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
One event on October 2, 2022 at 10:00 am
Enjoy an Oktoberfest “Goosetown” walking tour by Kevin Coleman 2-4pm Saturday October 1st & 10am-12pm Sunday October 2nd, 2022.
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 butcher’s Romanesque 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 and ends at Springdale Garden Center at 533 North High Street in Chillicothe, Ohio, with parking in front and 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.

Facebook apparently doesn’t allow multiple times for events any more, so I’m forced to create two entries for my two tour times. See each time at https://www.facebook.com/events/1125746781711572/ and https://www.facebook.com/events/773619800521177
