Downtown Transportation History

Historic Preservation Month activities continue tonight with a walking tour featuring Downtown Transportation History.

Thursday, May 19, 6:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m.

Meet at N.W. Fourth and Vine Streets- south corner of the Old Courthouse.  As Evansville evolved through history, the downtown always was the transportation hub of the region.  Here there were steamboats, canal boats, trains, trolley cars, and this was the place where the community was introduced to the “horseless-carriage.”  See the places and building that still recall these eras of our past.

Guide: Dennis M. Au
