Historic St. Jacobs Walking Tour
August 24 @ 2:30 pm
St. Jacobs might look like a town frozen in time, but its history tells another tale. This small village blends the modern and traditional but always stays connected to its roots.
This town has made a big name for itself, and the story is best told through intriguing local tales: the milling company that pioneered new technology in 1875; the early schoolteacher from Sierra Leone, the woman whose love for books built the library; the horse that delivered the mail for decades and a hardware store that became a nation-wide company.
Our 75-90 minute guided walking tour is led by locals who know the town best. You will leave feeling happier, healthier and smarter! Or maybe you won’t want to leave!
Accessibility: Route follows paved surfaces on main town streets and side streets. There is one downhill and uphill section at the beginning of the walk. Sidewalks are quite narrow in the Village of St. Jacobs, but still accessible for scooters & wheelchairs.
Where to Meet: The parkette & benches beside Scotiabank & The Shed: Café by Lenjo Bakes
