Online Event

Description

This walking tour in the historic Allentown neighborhood focuses on residential architecture of the mid-nineteenth century. Two of Allentown’s most intriguing residential streets, North Pearl and Franklin Streets, feature Victorian style homes largely designed in the Italianate and French Second Empire styles. Located between Main Street and Delaware Avenue, these streets attracted professionals who wanted to combine comfortable suburban living with proximity to the boom of Buffalo’s commerce. Join us for this neighborhood walking tour to see excellent examples of these architectural styles and learn about the history of the houses and individuals who called them home.

This tour is approximately ninety minutes in length and 1.1 miles in length. The tour meets outside the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site at 641 Delaware Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14202. Meet by the Franklin Street (back) entrance of the Site, by the parking lot. Parking is available in the TR Site’s parking lot accessible from Franklin Street or Delaware Avenue. Please park close to the TR Site building in either the center section or along the south wall of the parking lot.
