Granby Street has been the historic core of downtown and its commercial center for more than two centuries. This tour will focus on Granby's evolution from a strip of tenement housing and merchant shops, to the bustling district benefitting from the industrial alert evolution in the 19th century, to its disrepair in the mid-20th century, the pedestrian mall of the 1980s, and finally to its role in revitalizing downtown in the decades since.

Meet at 100 Granby, corner of Main and Granby
