A lot of interesting things are happening in the old town these days, and this new tour highlights a lot of it. We start on Franklin Street, which has a passel of textbook examples of mid-19th century architectural styles. Second Empire, Stick Style, and Italianate are at every turn. It’s not every day you see a tree like the one in front of 404 Franklin St., either. A natural historic landmark, it is the starting point of our tour.
You’ll also see two new renovations: St. Louis Church and the Beaux Arts Catholic Union Building, plus the recently saved Metzger Building on Main St., and quaint cottages on quiet streets.
