Historic Downtown Iowa City Buildings @ Senior Center

Some of the older buildings in downtown Iowa City succumbed to urban renewal in the 1970s. Others have been lost to other periods of demolition as well as to fires. However, many of these historical structures remain. In this presentation, a select number of them within a defined area of the Iowa City downtown will be explored. Their original uses will be emphasized and the local and national events during their eras of construction will be weaved into the discussion to give some historical perspective.
