Birth of a Ped Mall: A History at the Grove Presentation

May 15 @ 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Iowa City Public Library’s history experts will tell the tale of 1960s-‘80s downtown Urban Renewal, and how it led to the beloved and thriving Pedestrian Mall of today. Just in time for the launch of the final stage of the City’s Pedestrian Mall Improvements Project, come learn about pre-Urban Renewal downtown, controversies plaguing its redesign, and favorite hangouts and watering holes of Iowa City literary legends. Presenters: Information Services Coordinator Maeve Clark and Librarian Melody Dworak.

This program is part of ICPL’s Weber Days, a series of Local History programs and events honoring the memory and work of Iowa City Historian Irving B. Weber.
