CCHS's Famous "History-Go-Round" Tours

History-Go-Rounds are group tours to local historical sites arranged by CCHS for anyone with an interest in local history.  The idea for these group tours was developed by former CCHS Board Member Susan Elwell as an opportunity for both CCHS members and non-members to learn more about our shared history. To get an idea of the variety of past HGRs (as we sometime call them) that CCHS has organized, see the list below.

Generally, CCHS schedules at least one History-Go-Round a year -- in the Spring or in the Fall.  These are often linked with one of our free lectures.  The HGRs are free, or offered at a nominal cost to cover lunch, to both members and non-members.  Reservations are generally required.
