Walking tours a good thing

If you want to learn more about Pike County, what better way to do it than spend a sunny spring day walking through historic areas?

That’s just what is available in April, when both Troy and Brundidge will join in the Alabama Tourism Department’s April Walking tours programs.

The tours are being coordinated locally by the Pike County Chamber of Commerce and will be offered every Saturday during the month and will give participants a first-hand look at some of the historic areas of our communities, from the College Street neighborhood to the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library in Brundidge.

They should appeal to anyone interested in history, architecture, commerce and development, all of which are abundant in both the Troy and Brundidge districts. With houses and building listed on the state historical register, we have an abundance of architectural history and development to learn about.

We think the tours are an excellent opportunity for adults to learn about our community’s history, and commend the Chamber and civic leaders who will make them happen.

So mark your calendar now and plan to join the walk.
