Historical Walking Wednesdays with UofL’s Tom Owen start this week

Ever breeze by some of the older buildings on campus and wonder what their stories are? Now is your chance to hear them. 

Get Healthy Now is sponsoring Historical Walking Tours through Belknap campus 12-12:50 p.m. every Wednesday from Oct. 4 to Nov. 15. Those interested in participating just need to meet up at the Ekstrom Library Porch (interior of campus side, across from Humanities Building).

The tours will be lead by Dr. Tom Owen, veteran walking tour raconteur and local historian, who has been an archivist at UofL’s Archives and Special Collections for 42 years.

“This is a 50-minute opportunity for people to learn something new, appreciate campus and get a little exercise,” Owen said. “I am always struck by the university as a destination — the water features, the pendulum, the plantings, the flower beds, there’s just so much to see and enjoy.”
