Mass transit 19th Century style are the Wallace Stairs. They are a series of recently restored stairs, most 100 ft. long and more, some with landings and decks. Since the town’s origins in the 1880s people needed to climb from the main street level up to homes in the steep south hills. Today climbers are treated to breathtaking views of mountain, river and townscape, fresh air and a fantastic cardio workout.
