Tolton driving tour in Quincy

The Quincy Herald Whig reports that a new driving tour in the city of Quincy will take motorists to five key sites in the city important in the life of the Servant of God Father Augustus Tolton.
The tour will take visitors to five locations throughout the city, including Tolton's grave in St. Peter Cemetery, St. Peter Church and even Quincy City Hall, the original site of St. Peter Church.
"We went around to the five places that you can see something, something that is still standing," said Lori Tuttle, the bureau's public relations and marketing manager who put together a brochure on the Tolton tour, which also includes St. Boniface Church at Seventh and Maine, and the old site of St. Joseph Church at Seventh and Jersey. 
Tuttle said Tolton's story and the role Quincy plays in it is something that visitors can discover when they stop by the bureau's visitors center in the Villa Katherine.   
The brochure can be found at the Visitors Bureau at the Villa Katherine and on its website at www.seequincy.com [more].
