There comes a time when the body says “I’ve done as many events as I can do for now” and then it is time to relax with a delightful ride on one of the Historic Wagon Ride tours.

Riders are treated to a 30-minute ride that starts in the alley behind City Hall located just ½ block off Front Street. The tour includes touring of gardens, old buildings, quaint homes from the 1800s and a trip around Blue Eagle Lake. A guide will give the background information of each area and the history of the town. It is a wonderful way to find out how Potato Days has evolved through the years and how the town has grown to the size it is today.

The tours are on Friday from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. and again on Saturday from 11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The Historical Society sponsors these rides and $5.00 fee is charged for the ride to help with expenses. Boarding times are on the hour and half hour.

The public is invited to enjoy a relaxing tour as guides carry them back to the earlier years of Barnesville.
