May 20, 2021 at 10am, “Seniors on Tour” will take senior citizens on a walking tour of Downtown Main Street Chillicothe. They will learn of the history of our historical businesses, as well as view some of the murals we have in our downtown Chillicothe. This will promote a better understanding of Chillicothe’s past and present. “Seniors on Tour” is open to all senior citizens. For more information, please visit www.downtownchilli.com.
Tour and discover downtown Chillicothe! The history of twenty-three buildings in downtown Chillicothe has been researched and put online to share with the public. The research includes maps, pictures, city directories, newspaper articles and ads, and other sources. Each building can be accessed via a QR code. Read, see, and experience Chillicothe’s history. The tour begins at the Ben Bolt and winds its way south and east, but visitors can begin the tour wherever they see a QR code. Rack cards will also be available at various places with the information and a QR code to the home page. A hard copy of the tour will also be made available.
This project was made possible by the cooperative efforts of the Livingston County Library, Main Street Chillicothe, and the Grand River Museum.
