Mt Hope Historic Walk
August 22, 2019 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Thursday, repeating until August 31, 2019
Come join Community Captain Carrie for a nice easy walk through Historic Mount Hope and learn about the rich history in this amazing little town.
Meet at Harmony for Hope Center, 704 Main St, located across from Giuseppe’s Italian restaurant at 6:30 pm. The route will go from the Harmony for Hope Center North through town to the Mountainair Hotel where the group will then cross the street. Carrie will then lead them south walking through Millionaire Row where we will cross the street to the Coal Heritage Park. The group will then head north along the opposite side of Millionaire Row passing the Coal Heritage Discovery Center and returning to the Harmony for Hope Center. The route is approximately 1.1 mile and will go along the gentle grade of Historic Mount Hope Main St. As we walk along the route those in attendance will have an opportunity to discover more about the influence the New River Coal Company had in building the town as well as the future endeavors going on to revitalize the Phoenix City.
