Self-guided tours

To participate in the self-guided tour, pick up a complimentary Historic Provo guidebook at either the Utah Valley Convention & Visitors Bureau (220 West Center Street, #100), the Provo City Library (550 North University Avenue), or Provo City Center Office of Community Development (330 West 100 South).

 

Historic Provo guidebooks will be available from June 8 through July 4. The guidebooks contain a brief history of Provo, the development of its historic architecture, and photographs and descriptions of many historic buildings in Provo. You may download a free app to experience Downtown Provo through an interactive walking tour of 20 historic sites with audio narration, histories, and before and after photos. The free app is on the AppStore and on Google Play.
