A new season of walking tours of African American heritage, organized by the African American Historical Society of South Central Pennsylvania, will begin on Saturday, May 7th.
Two-hour tours will be held on the first Saturday of each month, from May to November, at 11.00 and 14.00
The “Conductor” guide will guide visitors to 12 facilities around Lancaster, including four that have links to the subway. At various stops, narrators offer to understand the historical significance of the objects; roots of human rights activities; the work of black business pioneers; and the role of various urban churches in the African-American experience.
Check-in starts 30 minutes before the tours depart from the Lancaster Visitor Center to Penn Square. Visitors are asked to come to the center at least 15 minutes before the tour.
The route of the tour is “safe, easy walking”, the press release says.
The cost of the tours is $ 15 for adults, $ 10 for seniors over 62, $ 5 for students ages 6-18 and free for children under 6.
Saturday tour dates: May 7, June 4, July 2, August 6, September 3, October 1 and November 5.
