Kearsley Street Walking Tour


1st Monday of the month at 1:00 pm & 1st Wednesday of the month at 6:00 pm

What makes a neighborhood? Is it the people, the houses, or the culture? What happens as that neighborhood changes over time? How can it remain cohesive and adapt to new residents, institutions, and roles in the city?

Join the Whaley Historic House Museum and Flint Cultural Center to explore these questions on a walking tour of Kearsley Street and the Central Park Neighborhood. Participants will learn about the early residents of Kearsley Street and the development of the Cultural Center institutions that sit there now. A walk down Second Street will also raise ideas about the changing demographics of the neighborhood and how its residents are working hard to find innovative solutions to problems, while building a strong sense of community pride.

Tour lasts roughly and hour and 30 minutes. Please meet behind the Whaley Historic House to begin the tour.
