This tour begins and ends at Douglas Mansion, the future home of The History Center! Learn about the area originally known as the “Mansion Hill” along Second and Third Avenues SE. Get a closer look at the few surviving elite 19th-century residences on the “hill.” Discover how this section of the city was transformed into “Automobile Row” when the Lincoln Highway was routed through the area starting in 1913. See many of the restored “auto-row” buildings and learn how the area is changing again with the emerging Medical District.
