ST. PAUL STREET GARMENT DISTRICT
Friday, June 17
12:10 to 12:35 p.m.
Timed to fit in with busy schedules and week-day lunch breaks, these 20-minute presentations feature information about on the history and architecture of downtown Rochester. Led by Cynthia Howk, Landmark Society staff member and local history expert.
Architecture for Lunch tours are free and open to the public, held rain or shine, for the most interesting lunch break you’ve ever taken.
Meet Cynthia at 12:10 PM in front of the H.H. Warner Building, 80 St. Paul Street. Explore the city’s historic garment district, where clothing, shoes, and ties were manufactured for decades. Today trendy restaurants, loft apartments, and artist studios have been created in these distinctive 19th-century buildings, many of which are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
