On Sunday, March 24, at 2:00 p.m., the Boone-Duden Historical Society will present its first program of 2019, “A Walking Tour of Hamburg.” This program, which is free and open to the public, will take place on the land where the village of Hamburg existed for one hundred years.
Participants will walk among the locations of Hamburg’s several homes and view about thirty-five photographs of the houses that formerly stood there and many of the people who lived there. Program presenter will be Boone-Duden Historical Society member Bob Brail.
The tour will last about one hour and will involve walking on uneven ground. Total distance walked will be under one mile. A limited number of electronic devices will be available for viewing the photographs used during the program. If you would like to download your own set of photographs to bring to the program, you can find them here:
There are three parking options for this program:
1) park in the conservation department lot on the north side of the road (with the green sign giving the history of Hamburg),
2) park next to the old cemetery across the road, or 3) park in the conservation department lot on the south side of the road with the view of the river. The program will begin on the south side of the road between 2) and 3).
A “non-walking” version of this program will be given Monday, April 8, at 7:00 p.m. at the Weldon Spring Site meeting room on Highway 94 just west of Francis Howell High School. The same photographs will be viewed. The “non-walking” program on April 8 will be held whether or not there is a weather cancellation on March 24.
