Event description

Description

If you've ever been curious about any of the historic buildings in downtown Cambridge, this is an event you won't want to miss! Held monthly on the last Saturday of each month March-November.

Back by popular demand...the June, July and August tours includes "Underground Cambridge"! The tour starts at the Guernsey County Courthouse and proceeds to the corner of N.7th Street & Wheeling Avenue where local historian, Rick Booth presents a PowerPoint presentation including pictures and an explanation of how the construction of The National Road contributed to the creation of "Underground Cambridge". A costumed interpreter leads the group underground to explore the forgotten places under the sidewalk and on the lower level of the building built by Col. Taylor. Go back in time to discover the breakroom were the ladies who worked at Rogers Jewelry often "smelled something". Then brace yourself as your listen to a warning to take cover in the underground fallout shelter before you explore Noble Market, the first business located in this location.

Tours will be offered at 10am, Noon and 3pm on June 24, July 29 and August 26 only. Each tour is limited to 20 people. Advance reservations are highly recommended for this particular tour. Demand is high and tours are expected to sell out. This tour is NOT appropriate for children. Please come prepared with closed toe shoes.

Tickets are $20 per person with proceeds to benefit historic preservation efforts in downtown Cambridge. The first preservation project was the replacement of 33 historical plaques which adorn buildings in the historic district. Each tour participant will be given a copy of the self-guided walking tour brochure that identifies the buildings.

Forgotten Places & Spaces is a cooperative effort of Ohio-Made Getaways, the Historic Preservation Committee and the building owners of downtown Cambridge. #forgottenplacescambridge #livelovecambridge

From 4-7pm on this same day, downtown Cambridge comes alive with Rock the Block...A Rhythm & Arts Walk featuring live music on the sidewalks, demonstrating artists and extended shopping hours.
