Self-Guided Walking Tours
Pick up a brochure which features historic photos of buildings, homes and churches, as well as a pictorial glimpse into the past of packing sheds and their crews at work. Brochures are available at the Palisade Chamber of Commerce, the Palisade Historical Society and businesses in downtown Palisade. This self-guided walking tour takes you through the center of downtown Palisade and into adjacent residential areas, showcasing sites that include businesses, churches and homes. Along the way, visit a historically significant area where packing sheds and shipping platforms once stood along the railroad tracks. Most locations are within a short walk from downtown.
