129th Annual Meeting

Tours Organized by the Local Arrangements Committee

AHA, October 2014

The Local Arrangements Committee has organized 28 tours highlighting the historical resources of New York City. Several are offered through Big Onion Walking Tours, which specializes in tours led by current doctoral candidates or recent PhDs in history. Participants will have a unique opportunity to take these tours with their fellow historians. Tickets for a tour of New York religious sites organized by the American Society of Church History will also be sold through AHA registration. See the AHA website for details and ticket prices.

Preregistration for tours is highly recommended. Tour tickets are nonrefundable and cannot be exchanged. Tour participants must be registered for the AHA meeting. Those who want to review the annual meeting program (to be published in mid-November) before purchasing tickets may log in to the registration resource center or call 508–743–0510 to add tickets to an existing registration.

All tour groups will meet in the New York Hilton Midtown’s Americas Hall I. Tours may travel by bus, subway, or on foot. Fares and admission fees are included in the price of the tour. Accessible buses or alternate transportation for people with disabilities will be available on request. Contact aha@historians.org for additional information.
