The Swedeville Walking tour (courtesy of George Curtis)


The Norwood Historical Society would like to give a special thank you to several people, who without their knowledge, help and input made the 2022 Walking Tours both interesting and fun!

A special thanks goes to:

  • Irene Ingemi, for assisting with Swedeville tour
  • Joanne Powell, for creating an amazing architectural tour of Christian Hill

We would like to thank the many people who joined us on our walks. Especially all those who offered up their memories, making the walks so much more richer! Remember, we are all historians!

Thank you.
