Passport to History Month is a celebration of local history, stories, and the community that bring Lehigh Valley history to life. Each weekend in August, participating historic and cultural sites will open their doors to the public with tours, activities, and programs for visitors of all ages.

Adapted from last year's Passport to History Weekend, the month-long celebration allows history buffs and local residents to reach more of the area's historic sites.

Child-friendly tours and children's activities and games will be available for tons of family fun!
