Next up in Downtown Inc’s Historic Walking Tour series is an exploration of Colonial and Revolutionary era York. Daniel Roe of the York County Heritage Trust will guide participants to no less than:

  • The former residence of a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
  • The former residence of a Revolutionary war colonel.
  • The headquarters for two American generals.
  • Buildings visited by John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and George Washington.

Participants will also get a peek at York City as it was through a collection of drawings by Lewis Miller and William Wagner.

The walk begins at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 6, and will last about two hours. Participants will be told where to meet after they register.

The fee is $12 for adults and $6 for children 12 and under. A goodie bag filled with coupons and gifts from downtown businesses will be given to each participant.
