Meet at the corner of Paru Street & San Antonio Avenue, across from Franklin School
Free for AAPS members; $5 for non-members
This year the annual AAPS walk will cover a lot of ground and touch on historic preservation issues. All manners of residential architecture will be showcased, and guides will also be discussing the “lagoonitis” which are caused by the Utah Construction Company’s massive bayfill project. They will also talk about A. A. Cohen’s nearby railroad and describe the development of Franklin Park. The walk will end at a 1880s home where tour guests will be invited in to see a very Victorian collection of several dozen specimens of taxidermy, including a duck-billed platypus.
