Sorry for the long gap in posts. I recently took on a position in the public library's local history room, bringing my job count up to three. Woo-hoo!
The new schedule is a little hectic and on top of it all, I've got a tenacious, but not entirely debilitating cold. Excuses. excuses. excuses.
I'm excited about a new program I'm spearheading as part of my job with SCHA, though. We're now hosting downtown walking tours once a month, and more often as demand allows. For $10, participants can take a tour of downtown while looking through a notebook of historic photos that date from the 1880s to the 1960s. We share funny and informative stories about downtown Spartanburg, lament the loss of great old buildings, and imagine alternatives. In addition to the healthy light exercise, you experience downtown in a vastly different way when you walk rather than drive. It's a great way to spend about an hour and a half. So if you're interested, tell me!
Here's all the info (click to enlarge):
