To be fair, many historical walking tours are also architecture tours and vice versa. A look through the Whitepoint tour built of Olmsted Falls, OH reveals plenty of walking tour options that take visitors through years of history, architecture, and craftsmanship in this little known area of the country.

Like any good walking tour, there’s a little something for everybody.

When building a walking tour of any area, one of the challenges of course is determining the size and scope of that tour. For the Olmsted Falls tour however, multiple stages are planned for the visitor – eleven scenes in all for the tour in fact – and this provides plenty of material for visitors and residents to organize their approach to exploring the area.

By arranging it this way, guests can break the tour up over a number of days or separate visits. It’s a smart way to do it, and one that we haven’t seen in other historical walking tours built yet on the Whitepoint platform.
