Walking Tour: Architects of the Spring-Douglas Historic District
Saturday, May 15, 2021
Between 1885 and 1940, prominent Elgin citizens chose North Spring Street and Douglas Avenue for their new dwellings, contracting with local architects whose notable designs were already well-known in Elgin and elsewhere. On a leisurely stroll through the district with architectural historian, Rebecca Hunter, we will discuss the architects and their use of the elements of architectural style, and the role of historic preservation in maintaining and re-creating the original features of these homes.
Location: Meet in the parking lot across from 903 Center Street hospital building. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
