"We decided we wanted to do something to celebrate that architectural style," said Cindy Ainsworth of the Historic Reno Preservation Society. "Many times, it gets left out when people are thinking about our history. They tend to focus more on the turn of the century styles. This one will be focused on downtown."
Ainsworth said each walk is limited to 30 people and reservations are required to participate. The tours are $10 per person, but free to members of the Historic Reno Preservation Society.
