Step back into the past as you are guided through the tree lined boulevard of First Street SE. Once known as the Esplanade, it was home to Medicine Hat’s earliest and most affluent settlers. Marvel at the beautifully preserved architecture and explore the social history of the characters who once resided within. Each tour is subtly different as our guides delight in sharing their own stories and memories of this neighborhood, imparting a true sense of place to those eager to listen.
About the Guide Sally (McGee) Sehn
Sally was born and raised in Medicine Hat. A frequent patron of the Esplanade, she was a driving force behind this most recent rendition of historical First Street walking tours, created by the Heritage Resources Committee (now Heritage Resources Working Group).
Having grown up on First Street, Sally is uniquely equipped to be the tour guide and teller of its tales. Pulling from both her research and memories, she weaves a walking experience that will keep the stories of this neighbourhood alive and well.
