Title

Summit Avenue Walking Tours @ Hill House

Description

Take a 90-minute walking tour of the Summit Avenue neighborhood, named one of America's "Great Streets" in 2008. The tours highlight the Gilded-Age mansions that line the elite avenue and the people who owned them and built them. Guides will talk about the architecture, social history and current preservation issues of the historic neighborhood. The tour covers 1.5 miles starting at the James J. Hill House, proceeding west on Summit Avenue, returning via side streets and alleyways and concluding outside the Cathedral of St. Paul. All areas are handicapped accessible, but some side streets are cobblestone and have historic stone curbs. Call for group tour information. Tours begin at 11 am and 2 pm on Saturdays, and 2 pm on Sundays.
