Part One: September 23, 8:30 am Part Two: November 24, 2 pm Free to Landmarks members, $10 for non-members.
It is time to put on your walking shoes for a leisurely stroll down one of Montgomery’s most historic thoroughfares, Monroe Street, where once upon a time a future presidential assassin performed, famous actors strode the ‘boards, billiard balls bounced, and the aroma of fried fish sandwiches competed with those of indoor restaurants, the stables of the police and fire departments and the day or so-aged vegetables from the market under City Hall (which burned in 1932). The rhythm of the liveliest street in town was home to street singers, folk artists, peddlers, and “ladies of the evening.” Now famous folk artist, Bill Traylor, even found lodging in the Ross Clayton Funeral Home. It was where country folk came for a day in the city. Pawn shops, just around the corner from the finest jewelers in the southeast, offered bargains and one could find just about any thing desired in the corner drugstore. Meet at corner of Hull and Monroe Street.
For All Tours: Please wear comfortable clothes, walking shoes and bring water bottles. Call 334-240-4500 for details and information. Please note: If it looks like rain, check facebook.com/LandmarksFoundationMgm for possible cancellations.
