Armory Park Walking Tour

April 7, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

$20 – $30

The Armory Park neighborhood is south of Broadway and east of Stone. Buildings started to go up in this area with the arrival of the railroad in 1880. The tour, led by Alan Kruse, covers a half-mile in two hours and includes the outsides of public buildings on the west side of the neighborhood, no homes. These include the Blenman Inn, the Carnegie Free Library, the Scottish Rite Cathedral, the Safford School, the Willard Hotel, and the Temple of Music and Art. Personalities discussed include Charles Rivers Drake, Charles Blenman, Isabella Greenway, Mattie Dreyfus Heineman, and renowned architects Henry C. Trost and A. G. Rockfellow. This is a good tour for people who want more information and less walking.

***The tour meets across the street from the Blenman Inn at 204 S. Scott. Free on-street parking is available.
