This special walking tour will take you on a stroll along the interface between downtown and the Historic Old Northeast, an area within the Downtown National Register Historic District. The neighborhood has a rich collection of historic buildings, particularly those along 4th & 5th Avenues North, giving the neighborhood a special feel and sense of place.

The Burnside residence, pictured above, and located on 5th Ave. N. has a remarkable history of being home to women who made a mark in our community and beyond. It is a threatened local landmark you will learn about on the tour. 

The present boom has brought significant change to this part of downtown with the demolition of a number of historic buildings. 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.
