Ames Historical Society Has New Old Town Brochure

The Ames Historical Society has a new brochure showing many of the historic houses of the Old Town Historic District.  This 28 page PDF describes the history of many houses in the area between 7th and 9th Streets from Duff to Clark.Avenues.  This 12 block area was designated a local historic area in 1989 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.  The pictures and description show the history of homes in Ames from the 1870's to the mid-1920's.  Included in the brochure is a suggested walking tour.

The link to the 26 MB PDF can currently be found on the main Ames Historical Society page.  If this changes, we'll add the new information here.
