FIRST WEDNESDAY WALKING TOURS

Fairfield County Heritage Association Walking Tour
Fairfield Heritage is bringing back its popular walking tours, with three new ones set for this summer.
Tours will be held the first Wednesday of June, July and August, beginning at 6pm. Each features a
different topic.

June 2 will be “Mid-Century Shopping in Downtown Lancaster” as we talk about the stores in the
1950s and 60s such as Hickle’s, S.S. Kresge, and many more. Let us bring back happy memories for you with this
stroll down West Main Street!

Tickets will go on sale May 3 to FCHA members and May 4 to the public. Cost will be $15 and is
limited to 20 people. Heritage Executive Director Tammy Drobina will be your guide.

On July 7 we will take “A Walk With the Ewing Family.” Our tour covers sections of Main and High
streets and will bring you stories of Sen. Thomas Ewing, the “Old Salt Boiler”; wife Marie Ewing; their sons and
daughters; and their extended family, including son-in-law William Tecumseh Sherman.

Tickets go on sale for this tour on June 1 for members and June 2 for the public. Limit of 20 people;
cost $15. Marketing Director Mary Lawrence will be your guide.

Aug. 4 will be “Bars and Breweries” in Downtown Lancaster from the 1800s through Prohibition.

Where were they? Join this historical “bar crawl” minus the liquor (but what you do afterwards is your own
business).

Tickets for this tour go on sale July 1 for members and July 2 to the public. Cost is $15, and it is also
limited to 20 people.

Each tour will last 60-90 minutes. Participants should wear comfortable shoes. The walks go on rain or
shine. Tickets will be sold through the Heritage office at 740-654-9923 and limited number of tickets available and will be sold on this website
