Warsaw Historic Tour
Welcome to Warsaw! We hope you enjoy your visit with us – whether virtually on our historic tour (formerly the “16 steps in history tour”) or in-person.
We have 21 steps that are an important part of Benton County’s history. Each one has its own story and we are here to help share each location’s historical importance.

We want to thank everyone who has played a part in the revised Warsaw Historic Tour – from the committee members, to the Benton County Historical Society, to local residents who we interviewed about the history. But most importantly, to the community leaders of the original Sixteen Steps Through History by Kathleen White Miles and the Benton County Historical Society.
The revised version of the Warsaw Historic Tour 2021 is brought to you by the Warsaw Historic Tour Committee, consisting of members of the community.
