The buildings we'll explore are keys to unlocking the past and understanding the city's mood over the last century, give or take a few years. Since the mid-1800s, buildings have been constructed, renovated, destroyed, and replaced in the core of our downtown, but what remains represents a dense history of Toledo.

TESTIMONIALS

“Wow! This was an incredible tour and well put together! I was thrilled at everything that I learned and enjoyed it so much! It was perfect for all of my children 9-12-15. I also thought it would have made a great date night, anniversary, or even something to do with a parent/grandparent. Thank you, I appreciate my city that much more now!"

My 10 year old and I had fun driving most of the tour (we stuck to the downtown area). It was an interesting way to break the monotony of the day and actually was his reward for getting his school work done. Thank you so much for this!
