Historic Downtown Walking Tour
August 29, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
The Heritage Council is proud to present the annual Historic Downtown Costumed Walking Tour, which takes place in historic downtown Elizabethtown every Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. from June through September.
Hear recollections and witness reenactments from Elizabethtown’s most notorious characters! Learn how a cannonball became lodged in one of the downtown buildings and how an Elizabethtown swindler got away with one of the greatest schemes of all time (The Great Diamond Hoax, previously written about in The Smithsonian and Kentucky Living Magazine).
The tours are FREE and open to the public.
Don’t forget to stop by the Cunningham Gardens behind the Brown-Pusey House to check out Tavern in the Garden from 6:00-9:00 p.m., where we gather for a cash bar and live music. Food vendors on site. Learn more about Tavern in the Garden here.
