Historical Society plans DC trip

The Geneva Historical Society will host a three-day, two-night trip to the nation's capital Oct. 21-23, with stops in Gettysburg, Pa., on the way there; and Baltimore, Md., on the way back.

The first afternoon will be spent on a guided tour of the Civil War battlefield at Gettysburg followed by dinner at the Dobbin House.

On Saturday, the group will visit Ford’s Theatre and Petersen’s boarding house in Washington, D.C., the sites of President Lincoln’s assassination and death. Participants will also be able to see the Smithsonian museums of choice including the National Museum of American History, the National Air and Space Museum, and the National Gallery of Art.

Dinner that night will be at Phillips Resturant, followed by an evening tour of the memorials on the National Mall.

On Sunday, the group will travel to Baltimore to see Fort McHenry, the inspiration for the national anthem, and Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, home of the city’s National Aquarium, Camden Yards, and shopping.

Ticket price includes all bus transportation, tour manager, two nights’ hotel accommodation, two breakfasts, two dinners, all attractions, and the driver’s gratuity. Tickets are $375 per person, double occupancy, for Geneva Historical Society members and $400 per person for non-members. A $100 deposit is due by Aug. 22.
