Rumford Falls Walking Tour Book

The information booth currently distributes a large fold-out map of the Rumford Falls and Virginia areas to be used in self-guided walking tours. This was a great project and we would like to build on it by creating a booklet that has both the map on a smaller scale useable while walking and separate pages for the individual homes and buildings listed on the map. Each page could provide detailed information on the history and significance of each property and show past and present pictures of the buildings to provide context and make identification easier.

This should further promote community pride and outsider interest in the preservation of Rumford Falls. The information provided for each of the featured buildings may also provide a nucleus of information and photos to jump start the interactive website previously discussed.
