Reading The Street – Park Avenue
May 11, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Can you read a street? What do materials and architectural styles tell us about the history of a neighborhood such as the Summit Avenue National Register Historic District? Are these topics important?
This NEW TOUR explores Park Avenue in the neighborhood now known as Dunleath. Designated a local historic district in 1984 and a National Register District in 1993, it is regulated by a citizen design review process orchestrated through the city’s Historic District Program. What does this mean and how does it affect the materials and styles found in this district. PGI’s executive director leads this tour of Park Avenue to explore these topics that are critical to historic preservation in Greensboro.
This event is part of the 12th Annual Tour of Historic Homes & Gardens featuring Dunleath. Guided walking tours are FREE and will take an hour and a half depending on questions.
