You could walk by the same building every day and never know its history. “Walk Minot” provided a tour of the downtown area, recounting the history of some of buildings. The guide advised the group to just look up and take in the beauty of the architecture. Over the years, the buildings have gone through a variety of owners and different businesses. Even those who have lived there for years learned new things about their hometown.
“Oh, I like the history of the downtown Minot and the architecture of the buildings and the start of the holidays and the decorations.” says Vicki Fitzmaurice, Walk Participant.
The group learned that many of the buildings were drug stores or bars at some point.
