Lincoln’s Historic Neighborhoods


Lincoln is made up of neighborhoods with a distinct character and history. This presentation can take the form of a walking tour (depending upon the weather and the sponsoring group) in one of the Capital City’s historic neighborhoods: The Haymarket, the Near South, Woods Park or other neighborhoods. Zimmer examines the interrelationship of local history, architects and architecture, urban growth and redevelopment. He explores neighborhoods and their buildings to raise (and sometimes answer) historical questions. Visit with Zimmer about options in the focus and format of this program.
