A new event added to the ArtFest/Weekend in the Wilds will be a walking tour of church district in Emporium. On Saturday, July 2 the tour will begin at the Cameron County Chamber of Commerce & Artisan Center and continue to the churches in Emporium known for their leaded glass windows. At some of the churches, a presentation will be available giving the stories behind the windows.
According to the executive director of the Cameron County Chamber of Commerce & Artisan Center “There are numerous homes in Emporium which have gorgeous stained glass windows. It would be wonderful to expand the stained glass walk to include those homes!” Johns Lorson encourages home owners interested in listing their address on a pamphlet for the walk to contact the chamber at 814-486-4314.
