Hit the streets to uncover history of Massillon


MASSILLON, Ohio – Local historian Margy Vogt will lead a public walking tour of Massillon’s historic Fourth Street May 14 1 p.m.

The leisurely stroll, which includes historic and architectural highlights, takes about an hour and a half. The houses on Fourth Street, which span a century of architectural excellence (1830s to 1930s), were home to Massillon’s entrepreneurs and bankers, to prominent families who hosted President McKinley, and to humanitarians who harbored fugitive slaves.

The tour is open to everyone and reservations are not necessary. The $3 fee may be paid at the beginning of the tour.

The tour begins at the corner of Fourth Street and North Avenue, N.E. (in front of Five Oaks). In case of rain, the tour will be canceled.

This is the first of five public Fourth Street tours during 2002. Other dates include June 19, July 24, Aug. 22 and Sept. 22.
