Mr. Hower’s Neighborhood: PTP Walking Tour of the Fir Hill Neighborhood
Saturday, June 27 10 am
Join us on Saturday, June 27 at 10 am at the beautiful First Congregational Church for light refreshments and a “slide show” of neighborhood properties of the former “gold coast” of Akron. Participants will receive instructions on the guided private and public buildings featured on the tour. The tour ends at the Hower House Museum (60 Fir Hill) for a self-guided tour of the Mansion and Carriage House. Program ends around noon; self-guided tour materials will be provided for the property “spector” of Fir Hill’s wealthy and storied past life. This event is a partnership co-sponsored by PTP and the Hower House Museum. It is free and open to the public. First Congregational Church is located at 292 East Market with free parking in the Union Street lot; also free parking in the Hower House lower lot.
