Walking Tour: Massillon's Historic Fourth Street
May. 11, 2013 - May. 11, 2013
Event Time: 11:00 AM to 01:00 PM
Enjoy a walking tour of Massillon’s historic Fourth Street—architectural and historic highlights of the town’s grandest old neighborhood. Houses on Fourth Street, which span a century of architectural excellence (1830s to 1930s), were home to Massillon’s entrepreneurs and bankers, to prominent families who hosted Presidents McKinley and Garfield, and to humanitarians who harbored fugitive slaves. Conversation will include ballrooms, servants’ quarters, carriage houses, and horse-hitches.
The tour is open to everyone and reservations are not necessary. The $5 fee may be paid at the beginning of the tour, which begins at the corner of Fourth Street and North Avenue, N.E. (in front of Five Oaks). In case of rain, the walk will be cancelled. Copies of Vogt’s book, Fourth Street, A Century of History and Design will be available at the end of the walk.
