Take a walk back in time to discover what the historic Taft district of Lincoln City was like during the days of its early development. Beginning on Friday, June 4, 2016, the North Lincoln County Historical Museum will offer a free docent led walking tour of Taft and the Siletz Bay area. Tours are scheduled each Saturday and Sunday at 1 pm.

The tour route begins at SW 48th Street and continues south along Hwy 101 to the Siletz Bay kiosk. From there it will turn west and move along SW 51st Street to end at Eleanor’s Undertow, a little more than a half mile in total. The duration of each tour may vary but should take no more than ninety minutes. The tours, conducted and narrated by John Blaine, will include historic photos of buildings, businesess and street scenes.

John Blaine is back by popular demand as tour guide. This is John’s third year as tour guide, a role he fully enjoys. According to John, he never gets tired of the tours and often learns something new about Taft and Lincoln City along the way. The more he learns the more he wants to share, benefiting both the museum and the lucky people who take the tours. Thank you John!
