Twilight Tours Through Scottsville History (Walking)

Event description

Description

Scottsville Museum is proud to announce a guided tour through Scottsville's history which will be presented on Saturday and Sunday, 19-20 October 2019. The project is led by Museum volunteers, Lisa Bittner and Miranda Burnett, and staffed by volunteer guides and local actors and actresses. Come and take a lamplight stroll through historic Scottsville. With your tour guide, you will encounter town residents from bygone eras. Hear their tales and recollections, see notable places and people brought to life from the pages of history.

Meet journalist and humorist George Bagby as he makes one final voyage to Lynchburg on a packet boat. Overhear Green Mountain Grays' officer Robert Coles' musings on the eve of battle. Be astonished by Cyrus McCormick's new-fangled farm implement. Listen as Lottie Moon of Viewmont recounts her travails and tribulations in China and meet many more spirits of Scottsville's past.

These hour-long, outdoor walking tours depart, rain or shine, every 20 minutes from the Scottsville Museum on Saturday and Sunday, 19-20 October, and last approximately an hour.

Returning this year to our Twilight Tours is an indoor performance (handicap accessible) at Scottsville's Victory Hall located at 401 Valley Street. This indoor performance is scheduled from 2-3pm on Sunday, October 20. (Tickets for the Twilight Tours performance at Victory Hall are sold separately on EventBrite.)

All tickets are sold via EventBrite and cost $5.00 each. Proceeds go to the Scottsville Museum, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Scottsville's history.

Please note, no refunds will be given.

The outdoor walking tours are not handicap accessible.
