Downtown Springfield Inc. is hosting an architectural walking tour of buildings which are of structural and design interest in Springfield's downtown area. Led by Anthony Rubano of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the tour discussion will be focused on architectural styles, materials and treatments that make up historic downtown Springfield. The tour will begin at the Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices state historic site and travel south on Sixth Street, stopping at Tinsley Dry Goods, Maldaner's Restaurant, the Booth and Ferguson buildings, Firestone and the Hoogland Center for the Arts. The tour will be limited to 50 participants admitted on a first come, first served basis and everyone will be required to wear a mask. All participants will receive a $5 Downtown Bucks certificate that can be used at downtown businesses following the tour. Sponsored by the American Institute of Architects and Illinois REALTORS, the tour is free and accessible by everyone.
