Interactive Historical Walking Tours Improved and Expanded

Two interactive historical walking tours of Rockville now have an updated and improved online experience, with better navigation, additional locations and audio descriptions of the sites.

Rockville’s history is unveiled through the Historic Rockville Tour and African-American Heritage Walking Tour. Signs at each location provide historical information to complement the walks.

Those who want to tour from the comfort of their home can also view the story maps online.

The city’s African-American Heritage Walking Tour story map, developed by the city’s Department of Community Planning and Development Services, runs 2 miles and includes 20 locations in and around Rockville Town Center that highlight people and places important to the city’s Black history from the 18th through 20th century.

The Historic Rockville Tour highlights the town of Rockville, Maryland, as it existed from 1801 to 1850 with a 3-mile walk around 16 city locations.
