Ridgway Historic Interpretive Signs Tour
The Ridgway Interpretive Sign Project documenting twelve significant buildings and businesses that were part of Ridgway's late 19th and 20th century history were funded by the Lumber Heritage Region of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania's 11th State Heritage Region and the Stackpole-Hall Foundation. The project was developed by Bob Imhof a long time resident of Ridgway and the Project Manager for the Lumber Heritage Region of Pennsylvania and Past-President of the Ridgway Heritage Council to commemorate the buildings and activities that were a significant visual presence while growing up in the community of Ridgway. Following the tour and reading the signs allows local citizens that were too young and tourists a taste of the amazing buildings and industries that are gone but were part of the economic and cultural vitality of Ridgway in it's heyday.
