This week we’ll be looking at events at a handful of the venues participating in this coming weekend’s RichHistory Weekend. Fifteen Richland County sites are participating in this edition, and History for Children is the focus of this year’s lineup of family-friendly events. A “Passport to History” is being distributed to fourth grade elementary school history classes, with teacher information packets. Each site will have prizes, and students obtaining passport stamps from four different sites will be entered in a prize drawing.

A part of RichHistory Weekend since its first year, Downtown Mansfield, Inc. (DMI) will hold its 2019 Secret City Tour on Saturday, May 4 beginning at 10:00 AM. Take a peek into some of Mansfield’s most exquisite historic buildings and architectural gems on this self-guided tour. This year’s event is held in conjunction with RichHistory Weekend and the RichHistory Alliance.
