Adventurin’ : RWC Historical Walking Tour

9 Oct

I found out about a Self-Guided Historical Walk of Redwood City!  We had another fun adventure, in conjunction with our RWC Walking group from meetup.com

I was checking out the local library’s website… looking for how to donate books and other media and ran across a link to the History tour!  http://www.redwoodcity.org//library/info/localhistoryroom.html

It was a fun way to find out about a few old buildings that Dano and I have driven and thought were way cool!

The old brick Diller-Chamberlain building on Main Street is one of our favorites…
we always drive by and think how cool it would be to live in or have a business in that place!
Well… it is the oldest brick structure in RWC, built in 1859, and the first Commercial Bldg of RWC.

The Lathrop House (built in 1863), on Hamilton Ave, offers Docent Led tours and is open the 1st four Weds and 3rd Sat of the month.

Also… The Redwood Creek still flows within Redwood City (RWC)… however it is now under ground, it has been built over, but there are still canals that individuals and kayak into!!! Whew… Interesting!

It was a fun and sunny Sunday… and I’m glad we scheduled and took this historical walk of Redwood City
