Historic Architecture Walking Tour
King Street | Sept. 28
Over the years, Madison’s very first street has been home to the city’s first fast-food lunchroom (one-minute lunch, anyone?), first high-volume grocery, and first teacher. Throw in the Majestic (Madison’s oldest continuously operating theater), an art deco high-rise and a Turkish bath and you’ll realize there’s a lot about this well-visited street you may not know.
*This is the final King Street tour for the 2019 season!
