It is more than a walk through the streets of Olde Towne Portsmouth, when you take one of Colonel Crawford’s acclaimed Living History Tours, it is a little bit of history come to life. Since 2002, Eric “Ricky” Price has portrayed the founder of Portsmouth, Virginia, Colonel William Crawford, and extolled the extensive history of this early colonial port.
The Holiday History Tour is a 60 to 75 minute stroll through the history, homes and hearts that created the “faire towne” of Portsmouth, and will cover approximately one mile. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. Prepare to be educated and delighted with this walking production, which “is never quite the same!”
Tours will be conducted Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday starting at 1:30 p.m. and will depart from the Courthouse Gallery at High and Court Streets. Tours will continue through December 31 – including Christmas Day.
Ticket prices are as follows: General Admission - $10.00 Senior (62+) and Military / two for $15.00 Children 8 and younger – FREE but not advised.
Fees are collected at the time of the tour.
