$600

Discover the rich and vibrant history of Stewart, Ohio and surrounding communities. Throughout this weekend experience, we embrace the often uncomfortable and tragic parts of our history, but we also celebrate the resilient and inspiring future of Black entrepreneurship and community. We will hear stories about people of African descent who have played an integral part in the region’s development as we visit locations of historical significance. On this unique and insightful journey through Appalachian Ohio, you will discover the historical and cultural gems even long-time residents might have yet to explore.

This weekend-long, guided tour includes stops at two unique museums, three meals by local and Black owned businesses, a guided drum circle, tour of a local maple syrup farm, transportation and more! On this experience you will gain factual knowledge about the natural and cultural heritage of the region from local historians, business owners, and farmers that uplift the diversity of our community. Dinner reservations and a specialty menu are provided at Dutch Creek Winery along with an exclusive tour of their honey, wine, and mead production, including a honey sampling. This is an all-inclusive tour aside from lodging (check out our list below for local lodging accommodations that will provide you a discount rate if you book this tour with us).
