Historic Provo Tours

Follow Us
In celebration of Provo’s rich history and tradition, the Provo City Landmarks Commission has joined with the Utah Division of State History, the National Parks Service, and the Freedom Festival to produce a self-guided sidewalk tour of buildings and homes listed on the Local and National Historic Registers in the Joaquin Neighborhood of Provo. Due to the pandemic there will not be in-home tours or a reception this year. We hope to return to our usual programming next year.

Self-guided tours

To participate in the self-guided tour, download the Joaquin Neighborhood Walking Tour brochure on the Freedom Festival website Historic Home Tour event page or on the Provo Landmarks Commission website. Note that hardcopies are unavailable this year as we are updating the entire Historic Provo booklet.

 

A PDF of the guidebook is available for download below. The guidebooks contain a brief history of Provo, the development of its historic architecture, and photographs and descriptions of many historic buildings in Provo. Additionally, a free app has been developed so you may experience Downtown Provo through an interactive walking tour of 20 historic sites with audio narration, histories, and a wonderful before and after photo feature. The tour is available on the AppStore and on Google Play.
