Our agenda of events is always changing but here are some upcoming event highlights:

Free Saturday Guided Walking Tours May through October!

Walking Tour

Every Saturday from May through October, 10am, and its always FREE!

We meet every Saturday at 10am outside the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library, on the porch of the Emily Smith House, 24 N. Coalter Street, Staunton VA 24401

For over 25 years, Historic Staunton Foundation has offered free walking tours  of Staunton's nationally renowned historic  architecture.  We walk downtown and through the bordering historic neighborhoods.  

As noted by Southern Living:

 "Just Stroll down one of Staunton's quaint streets, and you're bound to see it all - Federal, Italianate, Greek Revival, Queen Anne, Colonial Revival - and the list goes on."

Learn about Staunton's history from our founding in 1732 by Scots-Irish settler John Lewis to our thriving Victorian town.

Tours last approximately 2 hours. All six of Staunton's Historic Districts will be discussed by your volunteer tour guide.

No reservations needed. Come as you are, but we suggest comfortable walking shoes!

Best of all, our tours are always free and casual!
