Lowertown Walking Tours
Lowertown's story is told through layers of history, evident in the great works of architecture that have withstood the district's rise, fall, and recent revitalization.
Home to buildings by architectural greats such as Charles S. Frost, Cass Gilbert, and J. Walter Stevens, the visual unity of Lowertown arises from similarities in construction materials, most of which were locally sourced - red bricks from Lilydale; cream bricks from Chaska; granite and other stone from Rockville, Hinckley, and Saint Cloud.
Since 2010, Lowertown Landing has been offering free historic walking tours during the summer to share the stories behind Lowertown's historic facade, made possible by grants from the Lowertown Future Fund. Summer 2014 tours run Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 15 through August 7. Click here to sign up today!
