You’ll hear amazing tales from Salida’s colorful (oftentimes violent) history, and view over 100 preserved buildings, along with the location of the fire that destroyed Salida in 1888, the spot of a lynching, the roaring ‘recreation district,’ and why Salida is pronounced the way it is. Even locals are amazed at how much they didn’t know about their home town!
This is a fundraiser that doesn’t require our typical loads of time and planning. Just make a reservation, show up, and take a walk on a beautiful fall Sunday. All the owner asks is that if you love the tour, spread the word. This is his first year offering tours. There are four or five different types. Check them out on his website. He is a character, and I know we will all have a lot of fun!
