Historic Homes Tour of Old St. Joseph

Join us as we tour the Historic Homes of Old St. Joseph on Saturday, July 3rd. 

Architect and preservationist Stephen Byrns once again leads us through an historic walking tour of the Old St. Joseph Neighborhood including the home of the 2020 Heritage Museum Preservation Award Winner.

This ninety-minute tour begins at 10:00 AM at Bear Park, the southwest corner of State and Market streets. The tour concludes at The Heritage Museum and Cultural Center with an additional museum tour and refreshments.

Benefits from this tour ensure ongoing history exhibits and programs.

Byrns, the son of Chester and Priscilla Upton Byrns, based in New York City since 1978, is a graduate of Princeton and Columbia Universities. In 2004, Mayor Mike Bloomberg appointed Steve to the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission. He served in that role until 2010.
