Tourism Estevan and the Souris Valley Museum announce the Historical Walking Tour’s launch as a redesign and replacement of the original1980s released Historical Walking Tour of Estevan.
“This tour gives visitors a chance to explore the streets of Estevan and learn about the rich history and interesting stories that lie in the buildings that were instrumental in creating Estevan as it is today,” shared Rebecca Westling, destination marketing and communications consultant for the City of Estevan.
The tour’s core route and stories still mirror the original tour but with added bonuses of trivia, photos, audio playback and directions, and focuses on the stories of people who lived in the homes rather than the architecture itself. Not to worry, though; architecture still plays a key role but has stories intertwined.
The Souris Valley Museum’s Executive Director, Mark Veneziano said, “We are thrilled to partner with Tourism Estevan on this one-hour audio-guided tour. Where participants can explore the historic downtown core and listen to fascinating commentary about the city’s architecture, vibrant culture, and storied past.”
The Historical Walking Tour is free, and users can participate by downloading the Tripvia app, or follow along on the website at www.estevan.ca under visitors and tours.
