Tonight we do a dress rehearsal for the Walking Tour of Historic Riverton 3.0
Features of the tours in this new series: One sheet tri-fold, 8 ½ " x 11 " Fewer stops on each tour/more overall A loop circuit of sites within a smaller walk area Liberally plagiarizes research of others; More details and illustrations Sites are more inclusive and representative of the town as a whole
Features of this first tour in the series: 17 stops instead of original 27 located along Main, from Broad to Third, then along Howard back to the beginning
although it has fewer stops, it includes some not on the original, such as the school, fire house, Cole Dairy (501 Main)
Another tour in the series will include: 14-16 stops in a loop from 503 Bank Ave. to 109 Bank, returning back by Carriage House Lane and Penn St.
The Walking Tour Series plans include for at least two or three more tours plus a separate Childrens Tour.
Think about… what can be included for a tour on the other side of the tracks. other themes, e.g. Churches, Things That Arent There Anymore what a newcomer would want to know that is not covered in the pamphlet.
Let us know what you think. No checklists, opinion polls, or five-point scales Just help us make another Walking Tour good enough to last the next 30 years.
