Village Preservation works to support, promote, and protect small independent businesses in our neighborhoods. These businesses are often housed in historic buildings, as illuminated by our “Small Business/Big History” initiative. This Urban Archive tour features local businesses with stories linked to their building, street, or vicinity. Visit the storefronts for the “Small Business/Big History” signage, and do some shopping while you’re there!
The sites on this tour are sidewalk accessible, if explored in person. They can also be accessed virtually on a computer or smartphone.
