Reflections of History: An Architectural Tour- Stroll through the Drake Park Neighborhood Historic District and take a step back in time when walking was the thing to do and neighborhoods were all about proximity. Participants will be introduced to architectural styles represented in the neighborhood, hearing stories of a changing community. The tour begins and ends at the Deschutes Historical Museum.

The Early Days of Bend- Travel back to when the river ran wild, Ponderosa pines were plentiful and Bend the Beautiful was a town in the making. Participants will learn about early Bend through the stories of six “Bendites” and how a young hamlet was transformed into a booming community. The tour begins at the Deschutes Historical Museum and ends downtown at the Lone Crow Bungalow on Wall Street.
