Historic Walking Tour: Downtown Hoboken
April 28, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm$15
The Hoboken Historical Museum is pleased to announce a new series of architect- and archivist-led historical walking tours, as part of its “Greetings from Hudson County: A Postcard History Then and Now” exhibition. Co-organized with the Hoboken Historic Preservation Commission in celebration of National Preservation Month (May), the tours will provide an overview of Hoboken’s historic churches and public buildings, as well as the various architectural styles that make up the fabric of Hoboken’s residential streetscapes, from worker housing and cold-water flats to modest and grand single-family homes.
Advance registration is required, as each tour will be limited to 20 people. Each tour will last about two and a half hours, and will take place rain or shine. Tickets are $15 ($10 for Hoboken Museum members). Good walking shoes are recommended, along with sunscreen/rain gear, depending on the weather.
The three-part series kicks off on Sunday, April 28, at 10:30 am, from the 1907 Hoboken Train Terminal and covering downtown Hoboken up to the Hoboken Community Church at 600 Garden Street. The tour will be led by architect Ana Sanchez, who is also a member of Hoboken’s Historic Preservation Commission. Her tour will culminate at the Community Church in time for a proclamation ceremony in which Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla will officially recognize the restoration of the Hoboken Community Church at 1 pm, kicking off Hoboken’s celebration of National Preservation Month on April 28.
