Today, the neighborhood is recognized as one of North Carolina’s premier streetcar suburbs with architectural confections designed by Harry Barton, Wells L. Brewer, Richard Gambier, Charles Hartmann, J. H. Hopkins, Raleigh James Hughes, Hobart Upjohn, and Frank Weston. The tour includes portions of the actual park, touching on the work of master stonemason Andrew Leopold Schlosser.
This is one of many walking tours across the city now in its 14th season. The walking tours will be led by Preservation Greensboro’s executive director Benjamin Briggs. You will gain insights on Greensboro’s earliest park, redevelopment issues, architectural vocabulary, and grand examples of apartment housing. Tours will take a little over an hour depending on questions.
Meet in front of Temple Emanuel. Cancelled if there is rain. Wear comfortable shoes! This event is FREE.
