Event Description

In the 1950s and 1960s, locals Beat the Block, shopping their way around the downtown core at places like Wren’s Department Store and Woolworths. Much of this neighborhood was lost in the subsequent decades, as developers tried to remake downtown into a starkly modern business district. Join historian Kevin Rose as he “Beats the Block” around the downtown core, sharing fascinating stories about the nine buildings that survived Urban Renewal craze. He will also discuss ongoing efforts to restore and reuse these historic landmarks. Meet outside COhatch Market, 101 South Fountain Avenue.

$22, which includes one drink at Market Bar. Guided by Kevin Rose. Mobility 1.
