Baylor Historic Village to Host Summer Saunters

June 4, 1996

Looking for a summer activity? Baylor University's Summer Saunters could be the answer.

Summer Saunters are special tours of Baylor University's Gov. Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village. Summer Saunters will begin at 2 p.m. on June 14 and 24. In July the saunters will be held on the 4, 9, 14, 22, 27, and 30. August 10 will be the final saunter of the summer.

The village depicts life in an East Texas river town in the 19th century. The summer tours will focus on how people kept cool and dry in the days before airconditioning. Visitors to the village will hand-crank ice cream and sample this summer time treat. Children's games also will be held during the saunters.

According to Debra Reid, curator of the Gov. Bill and Vara Daniel Historic Village, people in the last century typically slowed down the pace of their daily activities to deal with the heat.

Admission to Summer Saunters is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors, $1 for students kindergarten through grade 12.
