JOIN US FOR A STROLL AROUND BLACKSBURG TO SEE AND LEARN ABOUT ITS HISTORIC LANDMARKS.
Blacksburg was developed because it was situated along one of the East-West routes through the Valley of Virginia. Originating from the "Sixteen Squares" which were the first organized, developed land that made up the town, Blacksburg has grown far beyond its original size.
Tour Guides play an active role in the development of educational programs by conducting guided tours of the museum for groups of students and adults. Utilizing the techniques of dialogue and inquiry, storytelling and demonstration, museum guides encourage visitors to explore Blacksburg’s local history through guided tours of the original sixteen squares of Blacksburg.
Volunteers interested in this position are welcome to get on board now by learning the information and tour, but tours for the season will not begin until April or May. Volunteers interested in this position are encouraged to volunteer as site tour guides at the Alexander Black House & Cultural Center as well as the St. Luke & Odd Fellows Hall during the winter and early spring months.
