Downtown Hood River Historic Walking Tour July 26

July 26 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

$10.00

Downtown historic walking tours are being offered by The History Museum on Friday mornings this summer.

Walk the streets of historic downtown Hood River with a local guide. First inhabited by Chinookan-speaking tribes and then settled by those who braved the Oregon Trail, the city of Hood River is home to over 40 pre-WWII buildings. Hear about Nathaniel and Mary Coe, the first permanent settlers, whose home served as the community center, courthouse, church and funeral parlour. Learn how first the steamship, then rail and finally the new highway system shaped the town and its agricultural economy.

Walking tours will take place every Friday at 9am, from July 19 through September 6.  Guests should be able to walk 1/2 mile on downtown sidewalks with some gentle incline.  Comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen and a bottle of water recommended.

Tickets are $10 per person and includes admission to the museum. Walks are limited to 12 guests.

Meet at the salmon fountain/ flagpole at 2nd and State Streets, next to Horsefeathers Hotel. Note that the tour does NOT start at The History Museum.
