Anyone interested in participating is urged to register now as several tours only have a few slots remaining. Walking tours scheduled as part of this series on Wednesday, March 21, and Thursday, May 3, are already full.
Led by architectural historian and Town Historic Preservation Planner Michelle Michael, the tours will include areas along North Main Street, North Avenue, Front Street, and South Avenue. Along the way, each group will discuss the developmental and architectural history of the area, along with the significant men and women who lived in the homes. Tours will not include individual homes.
Each tour is approximately two hours and will begin at the corner of North Main Street and Walnut Street and end at the Wake Forest Historical Museum, 414 N. Main St.
