Downloadable Walking Tour
The museum offers walking tours of several area sites. (See our Calendar of Events.) If you can't make it to one of our tours, you can always enjoy a tour on your own.
Below you can download a walking tour of South Church Street -- or you can download the FREE UniGuide app for this same tour. (The great thing about UniGuide is that it has almost 500 walking, driving, indoor and outdoor tours in every U.S. state. You can download or stream tours using your own earbuds, phone or car speakers.)
The tour, approximately one mile in length, begins at the museum and will whisk you back to the days of dusty roads, plank sidewalks and a bustling riverfront.
