This annual event is FREE and open to the public.

A wonderful opportunity to see the interiors of historic downtown Hagerstown houses of worship.  Learn about the architecture and ecumenical heritage from church/temple docents and guides.  Music, refreshments and local art will be featured at some locations.  This is a self-guided walking/driving tour and can be started and ended at the house of worship of your choice.  Parking is available at individual houses of worship in their lots and/or along the nearby streets as permitted.  Several church vans will also be available on a continuous loop for those who prefer not to walk or drive the tour. Some, but not all, are wheelchair accessible.

Tour brochure with map.  Note:  The brochure is sized for 15 x 12 paper to be folded as a pocket brochure. However, it can be printed on 11 x 17 paper with good results.  Participating houses of worship will have a limited number of pre-printed, pre-folded glossy brochures to distribute.
