A new brochure spotlighting black heritage tourism sites has been unveiled. The tour, entitled “Marietta’s Black Heritage Walking Tour: Walk Together Children,” is a joint cooperative project of a group of black community leaders, the Marietta Visitors Bureau and the City of Marietta.
The tour spotlights 13 sites of historic significance to the black community, which are located within a mile radius of the Marietta Square. Some of the sites that on the tour include Old Zion Baptist Church, Cole Street Baptist Church, the original site of Turner Chapel Church, the Blue Eagle Fire Company and Lemon Street Elementary School.
