Fire Halls, Civil Rights, and a Ghost

This tour has it all—historic architecture, black history, and a ghost tour all in one! This walking tour gets you off the beaten path and into local culture. As an added bonus, guests can purchase and enjoy a local craft beer along the way. The tour starts at Serda's Brewery and includes the Boyington Oak, Big Zion AME Church, the historic Crystal Ice Company, Washington Fire Hall 5, the Non-Partisan Voter's League, and Creole Fire Hall 1, where the Excelsior Band began. Don't miss this tour of the west end of downtown, and be sure to try one of our local restaurants while you're in the neighborhood.
