Historic Uptown is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, located just north of downtown and west of 4th St. The 160 acre neighborhood is a National Register historic district that still very much retains its 1920's feel. The neighborhood was listed on the National Register because of the excellent and varied examples of popular styled homes from the early 1900's thru the 1920's. Tour participants will have an opportunity to experience and learn about these styles during the neighborhood stroll from tour guide Emily Elwyn, Preserve the 'Burg's president and an architectural historian. The tour will start at the neighborhood's new coffee bar, overlooking Round Lake Park. Come early, grab a cup of coffee and one of their tasty baked goods and support this new local business reusing a piece of neighborhood history!
This Historic Kenwood tour wraps up our spring Saturday morning tour season so if you have been thinking about taking this tour now is the time to join us! Experience one of the country’s premier bungalow neighborhoods on a leisurely walk led by resident guides excited to show off their neighborhood. Kenwood is one of the 'Burg's five National Register designated historic districts. It is also one of the city's two "artist enclave" districts. The tour will highlight both the architecture and neighborhood art projects happening in this popular and special neighborhood. After the tour, guests can choose to enjoy a drink or lunch at the Craftsman House, an American crafts gallery & cafe that was the original model home for Kenwood or at one of the many other local food spots in the Grand Central District along Central Ave.
