In celebration of Provo’s rich history and tradition, the Provo City Landmarks Commission has joined with the Freedom Festival to produce a self-guided tour, as well as interior tours, of buildings listed on the Local and National Historic Registers.
To participate in the self-guided tour running June 10 – July 4, 2013, pick up a complimentary “Historic Provo” guidebook at either the Utah Valley Convention & Visitor’s Bureau (220 West Center Street), the Provo City Library (550 North University Ave.), the Provo City Utilities Building (251 W. 800 N.), Los Hermanos Restaurant (71 E. Center Street), or the Provo City Center Office of Community Development (330 W. 100 S.).
The guidebook contains a brief history of Provo, a synopsis of the development of its historic architecture, and photographs and descriptions of many historic sites in the city.
Interior tours of significant historic homes in the Joaquin neighborhood will be given on Thursday, June 13 and Friday, June 14, 2013. Tours for June 13th and 14th will begin at 665 East Center Street. Participants may come anytime between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. Tours will conclude at 7:00 p.m.
On the evening of Friday, June 14th following the tour, a reception will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Provo City Library at Academy Square (550 N. University Avenue). At the reception a presentation will be given by Stephen A. Hales, Provo businessman, historian and longtime member of the Provo City Landmarks Commission followed by light refreshments.
