Created in the mid-18th century “for the benefit of all,” this colonial thoroughfare shows off an enviable collection of 18th- and 19th-century wood-frame houses. Although its breathtaking historic structures can give the street the appearance of a museum mile, it is actually a vital urban neighborhood. Preservation efforts beginning in the 1950s shaped this streetscape in many ways, including displacing communities and moving houses. This tour tells a story that touches on the past, present, and future and the ways in which all of these intersect in a living and breathing city.
This tour is held from June 15 to October 31, 2019 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 10 am.
This tour meets at the John Brown House Museum. The visitor’s entrance is located on the right side of the John Brown House. Follow the driveway through the courtyard gate and up the ramp to your left. Please ring the buzzer at the door.
Free Museum parking is available in a lot off Charlesfield Street, which runs parallel to Power Street on the other side of the property. The entrance to the lot is not far from the corner of Charlesfield and Benefit Streets.
