Tickets available for downtown tour


SIDNEY — The Shelby County Historical Society will be hosting a Sidney Bicentennial Downtown Walking Tour on Sept. 29, 2020, at 6 p.m.

As participants walk around downtown, the tour guide will describe how Sidney has transformed in the last 200 years. Learn if the stories that you heard when you were a child are true or just folk lore legends. The tour will visit the Peoples Federal Bank, the Monumental Building and a room of Sidney’s City Hall that was once the hub of activity and now is barely seen by the public. Every building has a story even some that are no longer standing where all that remains is a green space.

This is a free event but tickets are required. Because of COVID-19, tours will be very limited in size. Participants are encouraged to wear a mask on the tour. Masks will be required when you enter buildings. Reserve your tickets by calling 937-498-1653; visit the Ross Historical Center, at 201 N. Main Ave., email shelbyhistory2@embarqmail.com; or message them using their facebook account.

Once these tickets are gone they are gone. Because of the current rules and regulations the historical society will not be able to adjust the size of the groups as they have in the past.
