Main Street Delaware
This organization advocates for the downtown Delaware business district. They work together to be sure that Downtown is a comfortable, welcoming place for all who pass.
Downtown Places, Hidden Spaces
First Friday, June 1, 6:00 – 9:00 pm.
Are you interested in Delaware’s hidden upstairs spaces? Some unfinished spaces have been untouched for thirty years!
These sites and several other downtown locations not typically open to the public will be part of this year’s Main Street Delaware “Hidden Spaces” tour. Usually, nearly a dozen locations are scheduled to be part of this peek into the past.
The self-guided walking tour will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. June 1.
Tickets for this peek into the past are $10 per person. Tickets also will be available at the Main Street office, 20 E. Winter Street, during the June 1 First Friday celebration. All proceeds from the evening will support Main Street Delaware’s efforts to preserve and promote the city’s historic downtown.
New in 2018: They are partnering with the Delaware County Historical Society for a FREE self-guided tour of downtown ghost signs (the old, hand-painted advertising signs on the sides of many downtown buildings).
Volunteers are needed to help show tour-takers where the locations are and to answer some frequently asked questions. All volunteers will be provided with background information about the location and will receive a special thank you!
