The Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation announces its fall 2016 Athens Heritage Walks series. The walks are a series of guided tours highlighting historic Athens’ neighborhoods and places. Tour guides are local volunteers with a love for Athens and a special place in their hearts for their personal stomping grounds. The walks take on the interests and personalities of the guides, some of whom have expertise in architectural styles and historic trends, others who have a first-hand knowledge of the people who have inhabited their neighborhoods over the years…most of the guides bring a little of everything.
This year’s series features 4 tours, starting on September 11 with Kristen Morales sharing her love and knowledge of the Buena Vista National Register District. Morales’s tour is followed by a tour of the historic Pulaski Heights neighborhood with David Bryant on October 9; Oconee Hill Cemetery with Charlotte Marshall on November 5; and the Cobbham National Register District with Gwen O’Looney on November 13.
