2011 Old Redmond
Historic Walking Tours
Our Centennial is just around the corner in 2012, so are you ready to answer, or ask, Redmond trivia questions? Taking the guided walking tour of the historic downtown core is guaranteed to provide lots of facts, figures and especially fun since historian Tom Hitzroth will be the man with the stories, gossip and names.
For example, do you know in whose building an alleged bordello operated? Here's a hint: He would later become Redmond's longest serving mayor!
This year's dates are April 17, May 15, June 19 and September 18. Tours run from 1 to 2:30 pm and walkers meet on the front steps of the Justice White House, 7730 Leary Way. A tour will not be held if it rains.
Pre-registration is required and a fee of $8 per person will help fund Society research. To register, contact the Redmond Historical Society office at 425-885-2919 or email@example.com.
