Mark your calendars for the St. Joseph Neighborhood Walking Tour on Saturday, May 22 beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the corner of Bradley Avenue and Atwood Street. Mike Zanone, Vice President of the St. Joseph Area Association, will be leading a free tour of the neighborhood to showcase the last 250 years of neighborhood history as part of National Preservation Month.
The tour will last about 90 minutes and cover about 1.5 miles ending at the Grotto & Garden of Our Lady of Lourdes (pictured above). The Grotto has been restored in recent years and is now a state historic landmark. Since it’s Bike to Work Month, it might be a good idea to ride to the tour, but there is also parking available at the old Stoddard-Johnston School on Bradley Avenue.
