Come join the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation for their monthly Heritage Hike on Saturday, November 12, 2011. Presented each second Saturday of the month, trained guides will lead tours through a beautiful, historic neighborhood and will share stories about the people and events that shaped Sugar Land’s history. Heritage Hikes are a great way to learn more about our community’s past.
As an added bonus, the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation is now partnering with the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation to include the 1918 Sugar Land Auditorium on the walking tour. Participants will have a unique opportunity to view the interior of this magnificently restored historic building.
Walking tours begin at 10 a.m. and conclude at 11:30 a.m. The tour group will depart from the SLHF office located at 198 Kempner Street (next to the historic Char House at the Imperial Redevelopment site near Highway 90, between Highway 6 and Brooks Street). Participants can also enjoy food and fun at the adjacent Farmers Market before or after the tour.
The cost to go on a Heritage Hike is free for children under 12, $5 for teens, and $10 for adults. Proceeds benefit the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation and the Sugar Land Cultural Arts Foundation.
