Redmond Walking Tours
Time & Location
About the Event
Since 2003, Tom Hitzroth has led walking tours of Redmond’s historic district. Over the years, the tour has evolved from one hour to two, with the script changing as new information is discovered. “I’m looking for the question I can’t answer, which means I need to look further into a particular area.”
A lifelong Eastside resident, Hitzroth continues to work at identifying details of Redmond development from its earliest times into the 1930s. He is currently researching the historic site of the earlier settlement of Melrose that preceded Redmond as well as the historic development of the downtown.
