The guided 1-1/2 mile walk along Auburn Avenue provides insight to the diverse architectural styles still present in the Mount Auburn neighborhood.In addition, the program will include stories of many of Mount Auburn's earliest residents, individuals who worked to shape their community and country, and whose examples still inspire us today.
