Stories in Stone: An Architectural Tour
August 7, 6:30-8:00pm
$10 preregistered/prepaid. $15 at the door.
Assisi Heights has stories engraved in the walls. Literally! However, many more anecdotes tell the stories that chronicle the history hidden in the walls. Come up close and see some of the architectural features, aesthetical design aspects and a few of the often-overlooked artistic Franciscan features. Hear the stories stored in stone. Unravel the mystique of Assisi Heights. Wear walking shoes for this indoor and outdoor event.
