Women’s History Walking Tour of Ocean Grove, NJ

Posted on Updated on

Are you curious about our Women’s History Walking Tour? We don’t blame you! Last summer it was such a huge success, we’re bringing it back again! Led by historian Dell O’Hara, the tour travels on foot through charming Ocean Grove, New Jersey, stopping at sites connected to remarkable women who lived or visited here in the past. It’s partly a “living history” tour, with volunteer residents dressed in costume, portraying real women from the 19th century — innkeepers, a spiritual leader, a physician and more.

You have three opportunities to catch the tour in 2015:

June 25th – 10:30 AM
July 23rd — 1:00 PM
August 20th — 1:00 PM

Reservations are a MUST. Tour is $10 per person, $8 for seniors. Call 732-774-1869.

Hope you enjoy this video trailer we put together with scenes from last year’s tours:
