For a fee of $50.00 per tour we will assist you in making arrangements (such as reservations for lunch, advance purchase of tickets (paid separately), and discussing ideas by telephone with you in advance of your arrival, and we will provide one half hour or more entertaining walking tour of historical buildings, the mill and possibly some crafters doing their work. We'll fill you in on some very interesting stories about the past. We promise you are sure to be pleased!

Train Ride: (cost not included in the tour) The Whitewater Valley Railroad, a non-profit historic railroad, brings a train to Metamora on most weekends and conducts 5 or 6 half-hour runs up the tracks and back.  They also bring a train many weekends from Connersville to Metamora, lay over a few hours for shopping/dining/siteseeing, then return to Connersville.  They can also be scheduled for larger groups to run on your desired schedule. Ticket prices depends on which train. See the Railroad Website for prices, or if you are hiring us to help with your tour, we will help you get current prices.

Lunch: (cost not included in the tour) Special arrangements with local restaurants can be made in advance for groups at as little as $8.00 per person. Price varies according to restaurant and menu. It is frequently helpful if your group intends to dine here to have reservations to ensure the restaurant is prepared for a larger group. Special fixed-menus menus are arranged.

Ice Cream Cone and a Fudge Making Demostration: Ice Cream in a delicious homemade Waffle Cone, coffee, cappuccino or pop, or watching Donna make her delicious peanut-butter fudge, are a few other options we can arrange where the tour group leader pays the cost up front so the group members need no cash.  We can make arrangements, cost to be determined when we talk.
