History on Tap explores Wallace Annex Thursday night

SALISBURY — History on Tap, which combines the refreshment of New Sarum beers with a visit to a place of historical interest in Salisbury, will tour the Wallace & Sons Dry Goods/Annex Building from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday.

The three-story centerpiece structure in the 100 block of East Fisher Street once was a warehouse and has the potential to be repurposed for downtown living. Those attending will take a tour and get two tickets for New Sarum samples.

This is a construction site, so waivers must be signed. Flat, closed-toe shoes are suggested, and strollers are not recommended. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

This is the second of three History on Taps this summer sponsored by Historic Salisbury Foundation. All of the programs are free, but donations are welcome. The suggested donation is $10.

Bonnie Allyn will provide live music Thursday evening.

The third History on Top program will be a tour of the Salisbury Station catacombs Aug. 22.
