“Laboring Downtown” Walking Tour of Historical Industries in Downtown Chillicothe
September 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
One event on September 4, 2023 at 10:00 am
For about an hour and a half, join Kevin B. Coleman for two opportunities for his annual walking tour on Labor Day weekend – between 2 and 4pm Sunday, September 3rd, and 10 to 12 noon Monday, September 4th, 2023.
Chillicothe’s historic downtown was not just for white-collar jobs – the canal, railroads, utilities, mills, small factories, warehouses of all kinds, liveries, restaurants, printers, a brewery, a shoe factory, and even a river wharf, were some of the working-class employers in and near the business district – many of whose buildings still stand.
Tours begin where parking is welcome at 152 W. Water Street, opposite Park Street, and runs east to about 55 East Water Street in Chillicothe, Ohio, USA.
Find some previews of what the tour covers in the “Discussion” tab on the Facebook event page.
Tours are $10 for adults, $5 for students, and $15 for families (three or more family members including children). Please pay with cash or check when you arrive.
The tour will be on sidewalks and pavement, with some tree shade. And, your health is your responsibility!
