‘Home Again in OWB’ Biking Tour

June 9, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

In partnership with Preservation Erie, join Erin Phillips of Old Erie on Foot for a biking tour of historic and interesting homes of the West Bayfront on Friday, June 9 from 5:30 to 6:30pm starting at Gridley Park. Erin is the managing editor and a contributing writer for the Erie Reader – Erie’s only local, independent alt-newspaper. She is also the creator of the Instagram and blog of Old Erie on Foot, which explores the historic residential architecture of Erie, PA. Born from her love of taking walks in her historic West Bayfront neighborhood with her family, since its creation in 2018, the account has evolved into an in-depth house history research project, in which she uncovers the hidden stories of a home’s past. She is also secretary of Preservation Erie, a local non-profit dedicated to preserving the character of Erie’s built history. She can be reached via her website www.olderieonfoot.com, via Instagram @olderieonfoot, or via email at [email protected].
Presented by the Erie County Public Library, HistERIE week is a week-long celebration of history in Erie County with tours, talks, and virtual events! Our West Bayfront is proud to partner with the Erie County Public Library to co-host walking and biking tours that highlight the unique history of the West Bayfront.
