The Historic 1901 Water Tower and 1841 Foster House are both open for public tours the first Saturday of each month, June-October, from 10am-noon. They are both free to visit, but the Water Tower does have age and height restrictions. Neither are handicap accessible. For information on both tours, please contact the Hoard Historical Museum.

There are also biking tours, but those dates vary and are not set in advance. Contact the Hoard Historical Museum for more information.
