The Redmond Historical Society is sponsoring and celebrating its 15th year of walking tours in historic Redmond.
The tour, created and led by local historian Tom Hitzroth, is continually updated with new information. Hitzroth is a lifelong Eastside resident and chair of the City of Redmond Landmark Commission. He has researched the development of Redmond from its earliest times to 1930.
There is a suggested $10 donation for each person with a limit of 10 people per group. Anyone can pre-register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling the Redmond Historical Society at 425-885-2919, or visiting www.redmondhistoricalsociety.org. Registrations must be received by the Friday before the tour.
Tours begin across the street from the Hotel Redmond at 7730 NE 76th St. The historical society asks attendees to be prepared for significant walking and standing and plan for weather conditions.
