Evansville Historic Preservation Month 2016

May is Historic Preservation month!

Evansville’s Department of Metropolitan Development, Preservation Alliance of Evansville, and the Reitz Home Museum are presenting a full slate of lectures, tours, activities, and events.

Evansville’s Historic Preservation Month activities continue tonight with
Lamasco: Evansville’s Other Historic City.

Tuesday, May 17, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Join the walking tour which starts from Dairy Queen parking lot, 901 W. Franklin Street parking lot.  Lamasco was platted as a rival independent city to the north and west of Evansville in 1837.  Though it merged with Evansville in 1857, the area still has special character.  See homes, businesses, and churches that give this part of town its lasting unique personality.

Guide: Joseph Engler
