During summer Red Bird District First Friday Art Walks in Downtown Sylvania, the Library and Heritage Sylvania are leading historical walking tours to help the community reconnect with the past.

Exploring the Past: Historic Sylvania Walking Tours

All tours begin at 6:00pm (and last 45min. - 1hr.)

June 7 - Location: Lathrop House / Beginning at Lathrop House guests will tour through Ravine Park and Harroun Barn, retracing the path escaped enslaved people took through Sylvania.  We’ll start at the Lathrop House to learn a bit about the Underground Railroad in our area, and then take a walking tour through the ravine and to the Harroun Barn with Sue McHugh, site manager of the Lathrop House.

July 5 / Location: Heritage Center Museum / Join us at the Heritage Center Museum/Cooke Home for a walking discovery tour of downtown Sylvania.  Led by Dr. Ted Ligibel and Gayleen Gindy, we’ll discover some of the hidden architectural gems in our neighborhood and hear some stories about our downtown’s past.

August 2 / Location: Sylvania Library / We'll start off at the Sylvania Branch Library and take a ‘hindsight’ tour of the neighborhood around the library.  Using photos from the past, we’ll explore how the neighborhood has changed.  Dr. Ted Ligibel and Gayleen Gindy will be using the old photos at each stop to show what was there in years past and share stories of the homes and businesses that are now gone.

All tours are weather permitting, and content is subject to change.
