Escalante Historic District Walking Tour
September 26 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
One event on September 28, 2019 at 9:00 am
This year’s historic district tours are dedicated to the memory of local historian, Prof. Jerry Roundy, Ph.D (1931-2018).
Tour begins at the Peoples Exchange, one of Escalante’s most photographed historic buildings. Come along to learn more about many of the historic structures throughout town. Escalante was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2013 as a National Historic District with areas of noted significance in architecture, social history, commerce, agriculture, and exploration/settlement.
Tour will be led by Dr. Larry Barnes, co-owner of the Peoples Exchange, an early (1901) co-op store on old Main Street, Escalante. His interest in Escalante history has led to several invitations to give lectures and to assist in preparation of the guide to the Escalante National Historic District.
