Visitors and residents of Nappanee will be able to learn a little bit more about its history through a series of walking tours starting this month.
The series of four tours starts with one talking about the homes that belonged to influential people in the kitchen cabinet industry. It’s July 19th at 7 p.m starting at the Nappanee Public Library.
Other tours will cover how Nappanee became a town, the beginnings of business and buildings in the town, and about fires, demolition and revitalization.
Martha Owens is the Heritage Collection Manager at the Nappanee Public Library. She came up with the tours.
“They’re geared toward residents of Nappanee, local tourists, out of town visitors and we’re even hoping to target teachers and classrooms with the app and sharing it with them.”
Next year all the tours will be recorded and put on an app called PocketSights so they can be self-guided any time.
Owens said the tours are open to anyone and there’s no limit to how many people can join.
