The 3500 block of Ainslie Street, c. 1910
This walk will cover two of the first residential streets developed east (or north) of the Norristown rail line. They arose following the Civil War, when expansion of Dobson Mills produced a need for added housing in the Falls of Schuylkill. Join us to learn about the origins, architecture, and early residents of these historic streets.
Please meet at 10:00 am sharp at the southwest corner of Vaux and Sunnyside. No registration is needed. The tour goes on unless the morning brings heavy rain. For more information contact Steven J. Peitzman at email@example.com.
Rain Date will be Sunday June 5.
