Centerville walking tour details areaÕs local history

Submitted By Kelsey Camello

Join local historian, Timothy Swenson of the Washington Township Museum of Local History as he delves into the history of the Centerville area. The one and a half hour walking tour will take place on Saturday, September 17, beginning at 11 a.m.

The tour will begin in front of Holy Spirit Church, before heading down Fremont Blvd. to Thornton Ave., and returning on the other side of Fremont Blvd.

Participants will learn historical information on a number of buildings, (some of which are no longer standing), in the historic downtown/business area of Centerville.

Did you know that Centerville used to have a town hall, and that a number of buildings are more than 100 years old? Join us on the walking tour to learn the answers to these and many other questions.

This event is free and open to all interested citizens and visitors of Fremont. Tour booklets can be downloaded from the museum website at: http://www.museumoflocalhistory.org/ Go to Resources > Historical Papers > Centerville Walking Tour.
