Museum of History & Industry hosting guided tour of Aurora Avenue

by | Jul 12, 2011

The Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) hosts a series of summer history tours, including a tour focusing on Aurora Avenue North. “Aurora: Life on Seattle’s Mother Road” is from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, July 23. The tour will be led by local historian Roger van Oosten.

Thousands of drivers use Aurora Avenue every day, yet few understand how a city street can be as controversial as this one. Aurora plays host to a broad and colorful spectrum of Seattle characters, often receiving public criticism as a result. Historian Roger van Oosten will give an informative, witty, and fun tour of the heart of Aurora, offering insight into why this historic Mother Road is vital to Seattle’s past, present and future. A light lunch will be served in Licton Springs Park following the tour, weather permitting. Meet at the corner of N 90th St. and Stone Ave. N.

Purchase tickets for the tour at Brown Paper Tickets, or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
