The Tri-Cities Historical Museum is introducing a new summer walking tour, the Downtown to Centertown Historic Walk.

The walking tour will take place Wednesday, Aug. 22. It will depart at 5:30 p.m. from next to The Depot, 1 N. Harbor Ave.

The tour is free, but reservations are required and space is limited. Call the museum at 616-842-0700 to reserve your spot.

The tour will focus on the significant buildings, architecture and history found along Washington Avenue between Harbor and Seventh Street. Tour-goers will need to be able to walk (some of the route is uphill) and stand for the length of the tour.

At the end of the route, participants will be served iced tea, lemonade and cookies by the owners of the Washington Street Inn, 608 Washington Ave. The tour, including refreshments, could take up to two and a half hours.

After refreshments, tour-goes can stay in Centertown for dinner, enjoy a casual walk back downtown, or ride back downtown in transportation provided by the museum.

The Tri-Cities Historical Museum is located at 200 Washington Ave. in Grand Haven. It is free and open to the public. Summer hours (Memorial Day to Labor Day) are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and 12-5 p.m. Sundays.
