Interactive Historic Walking Tour Of Chillicothe
A Downtown Historic Walking Tour has been created to showcase the downtown Chillicothe area. The Livingston County Library, in partnership with Main Street Chillicothe, the Grand River Museum, and the Livingston County Preservation Society created Walking Tour that currently includes 23 buildings.
Each building on the tour has been assigned an individual QR code that can be placed in a window for public access. Anyone walking by can scan the building’s unique code with their phone or other device to hop onto the tour from that location or just find information on that particular building.
The full tour starts at the Ben Bolt, runs south through the Arts District, and ends at the Chamber of Commerce. A virtual tour is also available by following the link with this story. https://chillicothedowntownhistorictour.weebly.com.
There are plans to add more buildings to their tour. The Downtown Historic Walking Tour is an endorsed Missouri 2021 Bicentennial project. Missouri 2021 is an initiative of The State Historical Society of Missouri and its Center for Missouri Studies.
