Walking Tour Presents a Personal History of Downtown Springfield

The Second Saturday Walking Tour Series at the Springfield Museums will resume for the season on Saturday, April 14, from 10:30 am to noon, with a tour led by Arax Charkoudian.

Ms. Charkoudian is a former Fulbright Scholar and a retired high school history teacher. Her father owned a shoe store on Worthington Street and she grew up in the city. She will lead the group to the site of the former shoe store and will describe her recollections of the city as it was when she was a child and young woman.

The Second Saturday Walking Tour series is co-sponsored by the Armoury-Quadrangle Civic Association and the Springfield Museums. Walking tour tickets may be purchased in the museum Welcome Center at 21 Edwards Street on the day of the event.

Tickets are free for members of the civic association or of the museums. Tickets for non-members are $5 per person. All proceeds will go toward improvements to the neighborhood.
