This tour will explore the northern portion of downtown, an area of historic buildings ranging in size from small homes to the seven story Flori de Leon apartments. These buildings, particularly those along 4th & 5th Avenues North, have given the neighborhood a special feel and sense of place. The area makes up a substantial portion of the Downtown National Register Historic District.
The present boom has brought significant change to the area, the demolition of a number of historic buildings and the development of a plethora of townhomes that are changing the neighborhood feel. Can the neighborhood remain special? Join us as we look at this changing piece of downtown, what is left of its historic integrity and offer some insight and perspective on what might be in store for its future.
