Preservation Research Office Affiliate Architectural Historian Lynn Josse wrote the historic district nomination for the Reber Place Historic District (with assistance from Michael R. Allen). Lynn has graciously agreed to lead a tour of this historic area, beginning at the corner of Reber and Kingshighway. The tour is free. Donations are gladly accepted. This historic district designation enables property owners to apply for historic tax credits on major renovation projects.

Historic tax credits have had a positive impact on economic development; spurring investment, construction jobs, and enticing new families to the area. Learn about the architecture, the families that originally developed the neighborhood, and the businesses that once existed in the Reber Place Historic District.

(Note: If you took Michael Allen’s Reber Place tour in 2012, you should come get Lynn’s version just to be sure you have the right information!)
