Downtown Historic District Walking Tour

Get a glimpse into our past as you stroll through our historic town square rich with history, architecture and art.


This self-guided walking tour begins on the Southwest corner of the square at 401 S. Main. You will then proceed east and make your way around the entire square. It is recommended that you walk to the center of the Square on the Courthouse sidewalk to see each building in full view. At the conclusion of the tour, we have listed additional buildings of interest to continue your journey outside of the Square proper.
