SPRING WALKING TOURS POSTPONED DUE TO COVID
Spring is the normal time when we schedule multiple walking tours related to Eldora Park and Cement City. This year was would have been our fifth year for our Eldora Park Walking Tour and our eleventh year for our Cement City Home and Walking Tours.
As of this writing, the Eldora Park Walking Tours will not occur again this year. Springtime is the best time to host these tours before the weeds start to grow and the trees sprout their leaves to best see the ruins of the old park. By fall, the forest growth is too dense to see anything well and to walk around the woods. We will try again in 2022.
We are guardedly optimistic that we can resume our Cement City Home and Walking Tours in the fall.
If you would like to have your name added to a callback list when we schedule either of these tours, please send us an email with your contact information (name and phone number) and number in your party.
We have other events that are also on hold related to Donora High School football, Stan “The Man” Musial, 1948 Smog, Palmer Park and Holocaust survivor Judah Samet, some of which were postponed from 2020. Nothing will be planned until we have a better understanding of where we are in relationship to the coronavirus.
SMOG MUSEUM TOURS BY APPOINTMENT
While the Smog Museum is still closed, we are still offering limited Smog Museum tours by appointment for small manageable groups. When we do these tours, we'll be practicing safety first for our volunteers and guests and enforcing that both wear facemasks and that we social distance. Your patience and understanding are appreciated. If you send us an email or leave a voicemail, we can contact you to arrange your visit. Others have already scheduled and visited without issue.
The SMOG MUSEUM will remain CLOSED for now, but...
- We can still be reached daily by email.
- All voicemail messages will be returned within a few days.
- Any research inquiries can still continue electronically.
- Any merchandise orders will continue.
- Artifact donations can be arranged.
