A walking historical tour of North Sixth Street from Central Avenue to First Avenue North will be held 10 a.m. Saturday. The tour spans the area from the Northwest Bank downtown location to the MT Vault.
The tour is sponsored by the Emmet County Historical Society, Emmet County Genealogical Society and the Estherville Public Library.
The 90-minute tour will convene at the library and afterward coffee will be offered at the library. Longtime residents are encouraged to attend and tell everyone what they remember or stories they've heard about the tour route.
