New this year & coming in Fall 2017 – Culture Walks!
We’re extending the season with four tours that will celebrate historic neighborhoods through the experiences and stories of residents past and present. Plan to join us in September for “deep dives” into the Near East, Merion Village, Hanford Village and Westgate neighborhoods. For more information or to add your story to the Culture Walks, call 614-645-1260. Culture Walks are made possible with support from Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the national Endowment for the Humanities.

      Hi Sharri – these walks are free and there are no tickets/registration necessary. Simply show up at the meeting place for each tour a little before 7 p.m. ready to walk! This Monday, May 16 we are walking in the Arena District – meet at the parking lot entrance of the North Market. Hope to see you there!
