Stepping Into History
May 24, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Berks Encore’s Spring STEPPING INTO HISTORY program kicks off with a bang! On Tuesday, May 3rd, over 30 seniors toured the historical buildings of The Heritage Center, including the Wertz’s Covered Bridge, Gruber Wagon Works, the Epler Schoolhouse and took a scenic walk along the Tulpehocken Creek.
Introduced as a new health and wellness program in the fall of last year, Stepping Into History offers seniors the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, walk for wellness and learn the history of the popular landmarks in our backyard.
Additional walking tours for May include, Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site on May 12th and Conrad Weiser Homestead on May 17th . The Spring program ends with a fascinating tour of Reading Area Water Authority Filtration Plant and pumping station on May 24th!
