Tour of St John for the Virtual Pioneers, Part I

Last evening, St John had a visit from the Virtual Pioneers.

Emmanuelle Huntress, Swimmy Sandalwood, Rudolfo Woodget and I gave a tour of St John to the visitors. We were greatly assisted by Aoife Lorefield, who handled work behind the scenes. Our focus was on the connections between St John and the actual history and city of New Orleans.

I owe all of the tour team a huge thank you! There is no way that I could have given the tour that we gave without your assistance.

Here are the transcripts from our tour. We had so much information that we decided to have a Tour Part II at some point in the future!
