[ARCHIVED] Historic Walk and Talk Scheduled for August 23, 2023 at 6pm

History Museum

Walk and Talk is a public program for adults that will take place on August 23, 2023 at 6 p.m. Participants should meet in front of the First Baptist Church at 617 State Street before the start time. Walk and Talk will feature historic homes and buildings and prominent people who resided on State Street and will end at the Ogdensburg Public Library. The goal of this program is to educate both tourists and Ogdensburg natives about the significance of a historic street in Ogdensburg-State Street.

The program will make use of QR technology to make this part of our local history more accessible. QR (or Quick Response) codes are a machine-readable code consisting of an array of black and white squares, used for storing URL’s or other information readable on smart phones, laptop computers or ipads. Signs will be posted on the street with QR Codes.Short informational videos, interactive photographs, and podcasts created by the city historian will be linked to each code, so program attendees will be able to access the history of each building by using their smartphones. This tour will be accessible online as well.

Walk and Talk is part of a series called Take a Walk Through History which focuses on the rich history of Ogdensburg, New York.  A donation of $5.00 is suggested with all proceeds benefiting the Ogdensburg History Museum.

Walk and Talk is made possible through the generosity of the Northern New York Community Foundation and the Sweetgrass Foundation.
