The Smokestack, 62 E 7th St.
DuMA and Heritage Works partner to present a series of walking tours of Dubuque architecture that will provide insights into Dubuque’s historic buildings.
Once home to the world’s largest millworking operation, this emerging Dubuque neighborhood has been transformed from a gritty industrial area into a mixed use district featuring residences, hotels, restaurants, bars, retail, and more. We’ll explore the remnants of the earlier industrial age, see a variety of different architectural styles, and learn how the rebirth of this district took place. We will discuss the history of the millworking industry and how important it was to Dubuque’s early growth as a powerhouse of manufacturing and transportation. You’ll discover buildings that have been completely renovated along with some that still need to find their new purpose. We’ll stop at a few local bars along the way and participants are welcome to purchase their own drinks.
