Until Covid-19 is Over, We’ll be Waiting

May  through October

Tour meets in the lobby of the R.R. Smith Center for History & Art
20 South New Street across from the Visitor Center

Thank you to all who made the HSF’s 33rd annual Saturday Walking Tour season a success!
Please join us again for the next tour season beginning  May 2nd, 2020.

Since 1986, HSF has offered FREE walking tours every Saturday from May through October.  Stroll through four of Staunton’s six historic districts as your volunteer guide describes Staunton’s development from frontier settlement to booming 19th century commercial center, and its beautifully restored architecture.

Walking tour groups convene at 10am at the R.R. Smith Center (20 S. New Street) across from the Staunton Visitors Center. Tours run approximately two hours. Come as you are, but we suggest comfortable walking shoes!

The Saturday Walking Tour is sponsored by the generous folks at Blue Mountain Coffees, located at 12b Byers Street in the Wharf Historic District. Gourmet coffee from around the world as well as espresso, cappuccino, sandwiches, wraps and bagels. Indoor and outdoor seating available, and free WiFi for customers.
