This tour is a terrific overview of the Victorian architecture and hidden commercial corners in and around Frederick Law Olmsted’s grand Richmond Avenue. On this tour, we will venture from the Elmwood Village and see mini-neighborhoods from the EB Green-designed homes on Dorchester Road to the Fargo Estate Historic District and Cottage District.

The tour meets at Perks Coffee at 448 Elmwood Avenue, at the corner of Bryant Street. Street parking is available on Elmwood Avenue and surrounding streets.
