Walking Tour of the Old North End tour on Monday, May 21 at 10:30 am

FOGG members are invited to to go on a walking tour that begins on Millionaire’s Row, which displays the opulence resulting from the Cripple Creek Mining District boom. Other homes housed the City’s elite, ranging from bank presidents to philanthropists to famous authors. These residences display a wide array of architecture, and includes works from many of the City’s most famous architects.

Tour participants will gather in the landscaped median north of Uintah Street on Wood Avenue. The route will proceed north on Wood, east on Caramillo St, south on Cascade Avenue and west on Uintah to the point of beginning. We will cover 8-12 blocks and the walk lasts 75-90 minutes.

There is no charge for this guided walk; donations can be made to the Historic Preservation Alliance.
