This free walking tour will focus on the strip of historic homes that still line Freemason Street in downtown.

Starting with the Willoughby Baylor house, we will move west, stopping by the Moses Myers house, the Hunter House Victoria Museum, and the Taylor-Whittle House. Freemason Street is older than this country, and the families that built these houses also helped build the city.

With this tour, we will take a step back in time to discuss these families, their lives in the early 1800s, and how these stately mansions have survived until today.
