Which came first—the street or the alley? If you were rich, the street; if you were poor, the alley. Alleys were once a dumping ground, but what a difference 100 years makes! Downtown alleys have special uses, regulations, design, and charm within the urban fabric. In addition to maintaining the pedestrian scale of architecture, they are home to innovative uses, little known histories, and charming watering holes.Drinks are on your own tab, but we’ll provide a few snacks and sparkling narration along the way. 

Tour will be led by Doreen Uhas Sauer and Tom Betti, co-authors of Historic Columbus Taverns. Your ticket purchase supports the work of Columbus Landmarks as we advocate for historic preservation and design excellence. We thank you!
