Tom Owen Campus Walking TourEver breeze by some of the older buildings on Belknap campus and wonder what their stories are? Now is your chance to hear them! 

Get Healthy Now is sponsoring this tour led by Dr. Tom Owen, veteran walking tour raconteur and local historian, who has been an archivist at UofL’s Archives and Special Collections for over 40 years.

As Tom describes it, “This is a 55-minute opportunity for people to learn something new, appreciate campus and get a little exercise. 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.”

Tom Owen has been UofL’s archivist for regional history since 1975. In 2017, he co-authored with Sheri Pawson, “University of Louisville Belknap Campus: A Photographic History.”
