About this Tour Stop...

This block is significant because it is one of the last remaining blocks that gives sense of what the River Walk was like prior to development. Two story building backing up to the river, with two story porches, where laundry was hung and mops stored. The early design guidelines on the river urged people to keep their mops and buckets off the back porches.
