VERO BEACH — Indian River County is full of stories, and the IRC Historical Society aims to tell a few of them this season with “Telling Tales,” a series of historical tours featuring five locales around the county.
The series kicks off on Saturday, October 30 with a lantern-light tour of the Brookside Cemetery in the northern part of the county.
Then, on Saturday, November 13, Mr. John McCullers will spin tales on the front porch of the Hallstrom House.
The series continues on Saturday, January 15, with a tour of the Jungle Trail and Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge.
On Saturday, February 19, we’ll explore Kitching Switch, which was a siding for the Trans-Florida Railroad.
The series wraps up on Saturday, March 19, with a bunkhouse breakfast and tours of a private cattle ranch.
Tickets for the entire series of five tours are $60 for members and $80 for non-members. Individual tickets are $15 for members and $20 for non-members.
More details for each event will be available on the Indian River County Historical Society website closer to the dates on which they will occur.
