Please note the change in fee schedules this year. Walking tours have a minimum of $200.00, Deskside Tours will be $1.00 per student with a $150.00 minimum, regardless of location. The cemetery tour is $150.00.
*Walking Tours: Tours of Downtown Nashville tailored to meet the needs of individual groups. Tours may include Ft. Nashboro, The Nashville Arcade, War Memorial Plaza, The exterior of the Tennessee State Capitol Building, and capitol grounds including statues of Sam Davis, Edward Ward Carmack, Alvin C. York, Andrew Jackson, Andrew Johnson and gravesites of James K. and Sarah Polk, Samuel Morgan, and architect, William Strickland.
Unfortunately, for the spring of 2018, Downtown Presbyterian Church will not be open for tours. I am hopeful that will change in the fall.
The fee for walking tours is $4 for students and parents with a $200.00 minimum. There is never any charge for faculty and school staff.
*In the Event of a Rain Out: I will have a powerpoint presentation for in-school "walking" tours. The cost is the same as the walking tour, and lasts 2 - 3 hours with 2 10 minute breaks. I have spent time gathering photographs pertaining to the people and events covered on the walking tours, and this should prove to be a successful alternative for rain days or just as an alternative for the walking tour if that is more convenient for your group.
*Deskside Tours: These are storytelling sessions provided at the school. They last approximately 1 hour. Topics may include, "More Heroes of Tennessee," "Civil War Tennessee," "Native Americans of Tennessee," or "Women of Tennessee."
The fee for Deskside Tours is $1.00 per student with a $150.00 minimum.
If two or more deskside tours are booked back to back there is a 10% discount.
*Nashville City Cemetery Tours: The Nashville City Cemetery is the burial site for many of Nashville's early and influential citizens. On this tour, early burial and funereal practices are also discussed. The tour lasts approximately one hour.
