Historic Walking Tours

College Heights Historic Walking TourThe College Heights, Highlands and Holmes-Foster neighborhoods include homes listed as part of the two historic districts in the National Register of Historic Places. These districts and the contributing properties within the districts have been of interest to local residents and visitors.

This interest resulted in the publication of three Historic District Walking Tour brochures.

These self-guided tours provide information on the history of the neighborhoods and contributing properties within the Homes-Foster/Highlands Historic District and the College Heights Historic District.
