First Saturday Walking Tours

The Gardner Museum of Architecture and Design's popular First Saturday Walking Tours program takes place the first Saturday of every month May through October. It takes place in a variety of neighborhoods in Quincy and features a variety of architectural styles and historical information. This program is made possible in part by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Illinois General Assembly.

There are only two dates left in this season's tour program. This Saturday morning, September 4th, at 10am... Meeting at 7th and Adams, St. Mary’s Church.

The last tour is October 2nd at 10am. 20th and Vermont, Bungalow District. More information to come regarding that.

The fee for the tour is $5 per person. Gardner Museum members are free. Participants are encouraged to wear good walking shoes and have the ability to climb stairs as occasionally a homeowner will invite everyone in for a tour.
