A Historic Armchair-Walking-Tour of Longfellow Neighborhood

307

Published on

The armchair walking tour, presented on Iowa City Public Library T.V. Chanel 10, discussed architectural history and historic associations of buildings to events and people in the Longfellow Neighborhood. Walking tours are great, but the goal of the event organizer is to provide greater accessibility for all, not jus those who can go on walking tours.
