Wednesday evening: Architectural walking tour downtown

Historic Woolworth's buildingFrom our friends at Preservation Greensboro, a free event Wednesday evening at 7, beginning at the Green Bean, 341 South Elm Street:

Have you ever wondered why our Elm Street is considered by some to be the best-preserved “big city” main street in North Carolina? Are you curious how to determine a Richardsonian Romanesque from Neoclassical Revival?

Learn about these architectural features and more on an architectural tour of Elm Street and surrounding blocks. Led by Preservation Greensboro’s executive director, Benjamin Briggs, you will gain insights on what exactly makes our city so…cool! Tours will take a little over an hour depending on questions. Wear comfortable shoes!

  • Also this week: The ribbon-cutting at the new location of Architectural Salvage of Greensboro, 1028 Huffman Street, Saturday July 19, beginning at 9 a.m.
