Issues with the FOHS Walking Tour application
We're putting the first attempt at a Virtual Fair Oaks Walking Tour here for
users to test and comment. With a number of different types of hardware,
operating systems, security settings and other issues, we would like to
have people test the main page and Loop 1 to see if anyone is experiencing

In particular, none of us have Samsung type phones or tablets and we need help
verifying if the application works there.
Thanks, FOHS staff.

Center and will be happy to assist anyone wanting access there. If there
are any issues regarding disabled access, please contact the staff.
