Before cars were parked in a garage at the end of a driveway...horses, hay, and carriages were housed in an outbuilding back at the alley.
Learn more about these "urban barns" on a March walking tour past carriage houses in Chillicothe with architectural historian Kevin Coleman. On Sunday, March 11th, between 2 and 4 p.m., walk from Water to 5th Street in the near west side to learn the details, variety, and preservation issues of these under-appreciated accent historical buildings. An additional presentation may be after the end of the tour at the Ross County Heritage Center.
The tour is $7. You can reserve limited-number tickets and learn more from Kevin Coleman on his Facebook site, or contact him through or 740 / 775-4036.
