Now it can be told! Mount Airy’s history as “Little Chicago” has been swept under the rug a long time ago, as the city turned to cleaning up its’ image in the 60s. Can you handle the truth? This 90-minute walking tour of our downtown area is handicapped-accessible and will take you to the areas some folks around here would still rather not talk about. Murder, mayhem, and moonshine are just some of the things you’ll hear about from one of our trained guides as you go behind the scenes of our famous squeaky-clean image. NO names have been changed to protect anyone!
Tours are held May 31 through the end of October at 3 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday and are $11 per person. They begin at the Museum, located at 301 N. Main Street. Reservations required, by calling the Mount Airy Museum of Regional History.

Admission: $11 per person
