Did You Miss Avoca's "2019 Trolley Tour"?

Read On . . . 

Looking for something to do with family this weekend? Did you miss the Trolley Tour during Avoca's 150th celebration? The Newtown-Avoca Historical Society has created a booklet that follows that tour and includes pictures of then and now. You can follow the whole route or do a section. The booklets are available in a box on the top step of the courthouse which is where the tour starts. There is no charge, but donations can be made to the Newtown-Avoca Historical Society. So take a drive, a bike ride, or a walk and see and learn some history of old buildings in Avoca.
