Beginning with the Open Streets ICT event on September 24, you will be able to walk around Wichita while learning about our City’s rich past.
Download the free PocketSights App through Google Play or the App Store and take one of three Wichita history tours. While on your tour, you will receive alerts to sites along the Douglas Avenue Open Streets route that have historic significance. Images from the Wichita Public Library's archives and other local sources will be featured, along with audio narration.
Meet the rowdy characters of the old West and the Chisholm Trail, as well as the engineers and artists that have called Delano home over the years.
Discover the heart of Wichita and its many transportation hubs, early business owners, and the stories behind many historic buildings.
Learn about the building boom of the 1920s, the unique architecture of the area, and the historic businesses and stately homes of East Douglas.
These tours have been made possible by the generous support of the AARP Community Challenge grant, which encourages community accessibility for all ages. This project is a partnership between the Wichita Public Library and Bike Walk Wichita.
