Tipsy Temperance Tour

6:30 PM – 7:15 PM
American Issue Sculpture

Description

Grab a drink from a DORA establishment and join the Westerville History Museum for a guided walking tour of sites within the DORA related to the town’s Temperance & Prohibition history.

The home of the former Anti-Saloon League is now home to a brewery, multiple wineries, bars & restaurants serving alcohol, and now, a Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA).

Participants will learn how Westerville has weaved its way in and out of alcohol prohibition in some unique ways. From the bombing of saloons at the same time buying alcohol at a pharmacy - to being so dry you’d have to “sprinkle the streets after a rain.” Westerville’s complicated history with alcohol leaves it with a unique legacy.


Registration required. Participants will walk approximately 1/2 mile. Provided in partnership with Visit Westerville & Uptown Westerville Inc.
