Summer Walking Tours in Huntingdon
Nestled deep in the scenic hills and river valleys of Central Pennsylvania, Huntingdon is one of our favorite small towns to visit in Pennsylvania. With its historic architecture and landmarks, rich industrial heritage, and that unmistakable small-town-America kind of friendliness, you’ll quickly fall in love with Huntingdon. Nearby, you’ll find the cool waters of Raystown Lake as well as the campus of Juniata College right here in town.
To learn about the history and heritage of Huntingdon while enjoying the scenic backdrop of those signature rolling hills and riverside mountains, plan on taking one of the many walking tours offered this summer that are free and open to the public. Through mid-August, the 4 and More Cultural District Summer Walking Tour Series explores the fascinating stories behind Huntingdon’s residents, landmarks, and artists.
Besides enjoying the outdoors and natural landscape around Huntingdon, the walking tour series also has options for those with a green thumb like the guided tour of Huntingdon’s urban treescape. Art lovers will enjoy the tour of public art installations led by John Kearns of the Huntingdon Arts Council. The tour showcases downtown’s murals and monuments.
about Huntingdon’s remarkable women who participated in the women’s suffrage movement to celebrate the centennial of the landmark ratifications that allowed women the right to vote all across the country in 1919. If you’re less of a history buff and more of a green thumb, take a guided tour of Huntingdon’s urban treescape downtown that earned the town recognition by the ARbor Day Foundation as a Tree City USA for over two decades. On July 25th, take a tour of Huntingdon’s public art installations with John Kearns of the Huntingdon County Arts Council. This tour showcases the variety of murals and monuments found throughout downtown Huntingdon.
You can also explore downtown Huntingdon’s architecture on a scavenger hunt for the conclusion of the summer tour series on Thursday, August 15th. The tour guide will lead visitors on a showcase of downtown Huntingdon’s buildings and unique architecture.
