Question: What is a Lantern Tour?

Answer: It's a story-telling trip through a location, usually conducted, sometimes by costumed characters sharing historical facts and history... in the evening by lantern, of course!

A few years ago in celebration of an anniversary, Pilgrim conducted its first Lantern Tour. They have since become a bi-annual tradition.

The last one conducted was in 2009, but due to the church's deep connections with historical figures from the City of Cuyahoga Falls and the celebration of the Bicentennial this year, we opted to hold our Lantern Tour in 2012.

You might recognize names like Henry Newberry, Ellen Crawford, Elisha Sill, Ogden Wetmore....all founding fathers of our city and all instrumental in establishing what was then known as First Congregational and now as Pilgrim United Church of Christ.
