BROOKVILLE, Pa. – A special tour of Brookville’s historic downtown churches is scheduled for Saturday, December 11.

Downtown Brookville boasts a multitude of historic churches all in close proximity to one another. These churches perform great services for their congregations and for our community. If you are like most people, you have probably never had the opportunity to cross the threshold of more than one or two of these institutions and to marvel at their dramatic interiors and rich histories.

For this Christmas season, on Saturday December 11, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., there will be a unique walking tour to get inside and to celebrate Brookville’s historic downtown churches.

The churches have been freshly decorated for the Christmas holidays and will welcome the tour group into their sanctuary and pews for a special but brief program. Participants will meet the pastor, learn about church history or architecture, hear a prize organ or participate in a sing along. Participants may join or leave the tour at any point (see the schedule below). Children and young people are also encouraged to attend.

The free tour is being organized and promoted by Brookville’s historic churches along with three local organizations – The Brookville Area Chamber of Commerce, Historic Brookville, Inc. and the Jefferson County Historical Society.

(Enter or leave the free tour at any point. Please allow time to walk/drive from each location. Parking is available at or around many of the churches.)
