Hi, I’m Karin Risko, Hometown History Tours guidebook author, tour organizer, secretary, advertising sales representative, all-around-Jill-of-all-trades. While I’m the guide on many tours, I often bring in some pretty darn smart people to conduct many tours as well.

At this time, Hometown History Tours is a mere one-person gig so you may not immediately get me by phone or email. I will respond, however, ASAP.
