Popular Park Ave. walking tour is back this Thursday!

Join The Landmark Society and the Young Urban Preservationists for a guided walking tour of Park Avenue’s ABC Streets neighborhood! We’ll explore the architecture and history of one of Rochester’s most iconic neighborhoods. As a special bonus–we’re even getting you inside four private homes! This is a rare opportunity to get a peek inside these homes and see the neighborhood through the eyes of local architecture and history experts.

We’re offering 4 different tour start times to choose from. All tours will depart from Immanuel Baptist Church (815 Park Ave). 

Your purchase supports neighborhood efforts to create a Park Avenue Historic District.

Thursday, August 29th | First tour starts at 5:30 PM | Tickets: $25
