Free History Walk June 28

VPNA invites you to a free walking tour “History of Boise’s West End”  by Tully Gerlach.

Tuesday, June 28, 2011, 7:30 pm

We’ll start from the parking lot of the 1st Congregational Church at 23rd St and Woodlawn. The total walk will be about 1.5 miles with lots of stops.

We are hoping to do a VPNA fund raiser raffle as part of the tour so be sure to bring cash or a checkbook to buy tickets.

Tully will focus on the Pleasanton Addition, shown in the attached map, although much of the information applies to the larger neighborhood too.  Tully did this same walk last summer as part of Preservation Idaho’s “Arch Walk” series.

This event is part of a effort to build an interpretive walking trail through the 30th Street neighborhoods which will highlight the area’s history, cultural diversity and architecture. To find out more about this project click here.

Also if this kind of thing interests you, Tully will be doing another Arch Walk for Preservation Idaho on September 29th which will highlight the Fairview Park Neighborhood. Space is limited for the Arch Walks and they often fill up. To register follow this link.
