UPDATED: Launch of the Historical Society's Walking Tour Mobile App

This is my attempt to scrapbook the Redmond Historical Society's "Steps in Time" launch. "Steps in Time" is a mobile app walking guide for people interested learning about our landmark buildings and downtown history.  Redmond historian Tom Hitzorth is still giving "live" walking tours.  Mr. Hitzroth customizes each walk.  Register Here.

Senior V.P. Mary Hanson came up with the name for the mobile app. This event was colorful, fun and informing.  I learned  how Mr. Hitzroth searches, investigates and documents historical records  I especially liked the youth coloring program and costumes.
