Guided Walking Tour of Downtown Waterbury
Commercial Architecture of Downtown
Starting outside the Post Office (135 Grand Street), this tour will highlight the richness and diversity of architectural styles present in the commercial core which span the late 19th through the mid-20th centuries. The tour will start with a detailed look at the north side of Grand Street then proceed down Bank Street, past the newly renovated former Howland-Hughes department store to the Apothecaries’ Building at Exchange Place and then down South Main Street and back on Grand to Leavenworth Street.
The Mattatuck Museum received support for this project from the State Historic Preservation Office with funds from the Community Investment Account of the State of Connecticut.
