Event Description

Ever wonder about the houses hidden behind storefronts along First Avenue? The Save CR Heritage "Hidden Homes" Walking Tour begins at 6 p.m. Friday, July 26, at Stewart Baxter Funeral & Memorial Services, 1844 First Ave. NE. (If there are no services that night, tour-goers will be able to see inside this historic home.) Cedar Rapids historian Mark Stoffer Hunter will explain the origins of the "hidden homes" along First Avenue and more about the history of residential and commercial landmarks on this stretch of Cedar Rapids that is fast-changing. This is a walking tour of approximately one mile, so dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Admission: free for members of Save CR Heritage; $7 for non-members. Memberships available at the door for $25. Follow Save CR Heritage on Facebook for updates.
