Costumed tour guides will lead the walking tour through the historic district and into homes where visitors will encounter scenes straight out of the history books. In the historic neighborhood, actors portraying local citizens from the 1908 Town of Willamette perform entertaining vignettes. From the postman gawking over the new Ford Model T (introduced in 1908) to Ellis Hughes ranting about “his” Willamette Meteorite, guests will be enchanted by life “back in the day.”
“What better way to know more about the history of Willamette, than to experience it first-hand?” said Danny Schreiber, producer for the event.
“It was great fun last year and the enthusiasm for bringing it back annually was overwhelming” said Beth Kieres, Willamette Neighborhood Association President.
The lamplight tours will take place on Saturday, September 19, 2009. Due to the limited number of people in each tour, space is extremely limited. Tours begin at 7pm and run at 15-minute intervals through to 9pm. Each ticket costs $15.00 each and groups of 4 or more are reduced to $10.00 each.
