Architectural historian Michael R. Allen will lead a jaunt around the Shaw neighborhood focused on Shaw Place, the private residential court laid out in 1879 by architect George I. Barnett. The tour includes a stop in one Shaw Place house plus peeks at a Carpenter Gothic house, an old-fashioned neighborhood movie theater, a railroad hospital, beautiful houses in many styles and an apartment hotel repossessed by its architect. Shaw Place anchors a vibrant urban area with intriguing architectural diversity.
