The 90-minute tours will cover Hagerstown's history by introducing participants to the colonial, Civil War and industrial aspects of the city. Tours also will cover Hagers-town's architecture.

Walking tours will be available for $5 and will begin at the downtown Visitor Welcome Center at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on scheduled tour dates. Upcoming dates include July 25, 27 and 28, and Aug. 3, 11 and 17. For reservations and tour information, call 301-791-3246, ext. 10.

Special dates and times can be arranged for groups of more than 12 people.
