Walk Edgewater: Edgewater’s Broadway–Catalpa to Rosedale

Edgewater Historical Society

This tour of the main business area of Edgewater has many surprises because it features several of the significant Motor Row buildings and a collection of two-flats built before the street was designated commercial. This tour captures a moment in Edgewater history when homes and businesses were side by side. The walk begins at St. Ita Catholic Church, on Broadway and Catalpa, and ends at Broadway and Rosedale, near the Broadway Armory.

There is a limit of 15 in each tour. Our tour guides, who will have microphones, will lead you through the tour, and share with you our researched brochure. Everyone must wear a face mask and keep social distancing. The fee for each tour is $15, which supports the Edgewater Historical Society Museum. Register here.
