Again this summer, the Oliver and District Heritage Society [ODHS] will be hosting Guided Historical Walking tours of downtown Oliver. With a revised tour route and new additions along the way, these tours are a great time for the whole family, tourists and local alike. Learn about the enormous water project that that created the town, local mining, what was here before and what makes Oliver a great place now.
From June to August regular one hour tours will be go every Thursday at 10:00 am and Friday at 12:30 p.m. In addition, a special new hour and a half long extended tour will also run on Fridays at 10:00 am. These extended tours will provide you with an inside look at the history of the Oliver Chronicle Newspaper and the Oliver Theatre.
The tours will be lead by ODHS summer students Isaac Nazaroff and Shannon Tan and will start at the Oliver Visitor Centre (6431 Station Street). Make sure to bring your hat, walking shoes, water bottle and a sense of adventure! We look forward to seeing you this summer.
