These one-hour tours are led by knowledgeable BCHA staff and volunteers and explore the history of our buildings and their place within state and local history. See our brochure above for fees.
Self-guided tours are available for free, but large groups must notify the BCHA ahead of time so that we can prepare for your visit!
Groups over 100 cannot be accommodated due to size and staffing. If you are interested in bringing a group of this size to the grounds. please contact the BCHA to see if serial scheduling works best for you.
A Tour & Talk
If you’re looking to make a day of your adventures here at the BCHA, then consider adding an additional 45 minute talk to your planned visit.
These talks cover local history through several unique topic areas, including transportation, communication, and even historic fashion and cemeteries.
Our group request form goes into further detail about these program topics, but you are encouraged to contact us to learn more or to see if a topic not currently available can be accommodated!
A Tour & Activity
Consider adding an activity to your tour to enhance your experience. This combination talk/activity add-on allows for your group members to take a little history home with them. These activities are designed for all ages.
At this time, only the topics listed on the Group Tour Brochure will be offered to interested groups. We are unable to provide a specialized activity outside of this list.
If accommodations are needed, please contact us ahead of time to determine which activity would work best for your group.
