Tipsy Temperance Tour (Ages 21+)

6:00 PM – 6:45 PM
American Issue Sculpture


Take a guided walking tour of sites related to Westerville's Temperance and Prohibition roots. Learn how Westerville has weaved its way in and out of alcohol prohibition in some unique ways. From the bombing of saloons to the buying of 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 an extraordinary legacy. 

The home of the former Anti-Saloon League is now home to a brewery, multiple wineries, bars and restaurants serving alcohol, and now, a Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA). Grab a drink from a DORA establishment (optional), then join the Westerville History Museum at the sculpture in front of Westerville City Hall for the start of the tour.

Must be ages 21+. Be prepared to walk approximately 1/2 mile. Space is limited. In case of inclement weather, this event will be cancelled.

Registration required. By registering, you agree to the following:

Liability Release

Voluntary Participation. I understand and confirm that my participation in Westerville History Museum at the Westerville Public Library (WPL) walking tour is voluntary.

Understanding Risks. I am aware of the risks, dangers and hazards involved in my participation in a WPL walking tour. I understand that the WPL walking tours take place in public venues under conditions largely beyond the control of WPL walk leaders. Potential risks may include, but are not limited to, uneven walking surfaces, potholes, raised path edges, wet or slippery ground, steps, curbs, low lighting, narrow walkways, traffic movement, road crossings, diversions due to construction or exposure to weather conditions.

Assuming Risks. I assume all risks involved in participation in a walking tour provided by WPL. I accept personal responsibility for any liability, injury, loss, or damage in any way connected with my participation in a WPL walking tour.

Release of Liability. I hereby release, waive, discharge and covenant not to sue WPL, its principals, affiliated entities, parent companies, subsidiaries, present and former employees, owners, officers, members, managers, partners, contractors, insurers, shareholders, and directors from any and all claims, actions, damages, liabilities, losses, costs, and expenses for death, injury, loss or damage of property, in any way arising out of my participation in a WPL walking tour.

Indemnity Agreement. I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the WPL from any loss, liability, damage or cost that they may incur for losses and damages which may be brought against me or against any of them by anyone claiming to be injured (including death) or whose property is damaged as a result of my actions arising from or during a WPL walking tour.

If any portion of this Waiver is held to be invalid it is agreed that the balance of the Agreement will remain valid and enforceable.

Consent to Medical Treatment. I authorize WPL to provide me with customary medical assistance, transportation, and emergency medical services as the result of injury or health condition. This consent does not impose a duty upon WPL to provide such assistance, transportation, or services. I have the right to refuse medical assistance and understand WPL will provide assistance if I am incapacitated.

Consumption of Alcohol. I acknowledge that within the DORA, I may consume alcohol. I fully understand that there may be consumption of alcohol before, during and/or after the tour by me or other participants on the Tour. I understand and acknowledge the potential risks and dangers associated with the consumption of alcohol. I am aware that this activity includes the risk of injury and even death, and I hereby elect to voluntarily participate, knowing that it may be hazardous to my property and me.
