Walking Tour of Mount Pleasant

With its main street, town square, and distinct boundaries, Mount Pleasant still feels like the village it once was. But more than just a feeling links this neighborhood to its 19th century roots. A pre-Civil War era mansion and a handsome collection of village-era houses remain. Historian Mara Cherkasky will guide your group of up to 20 around Mount Pleasant, where you will experience the neighborhood’s original street grid, see some of its oldest buildings, and hear some of its more fascinating stories. Ms. Cherkasky wrote the Mount Pleasant Neighborhood Heritage and has also published a book and an article on the neighborhood. She can customize the tour if the group prefers to focus on, for example, Mount Pleasant’s more recent music and/or activism history.
