Self-Guided Historic Walking Tour
The Fort Dodge Downtown Historic District was established in 2010 in an effort to preserve and celebrate the places that make our downtown unique. This brochure takes users on a self-guided tour of Central Avenue, the spine of the District. Along the route, keep an eye out for other important features of the downtown, including historic plaques that tell users about the history of buildings and spaces, and public art that speaks to the history and future of our great community.
This is the first of a series of downtown self-guided walking tours and is a result of a partnership between Main Street Fort Dodge, the City of Fort Dodge Historic Preservation Commission, Allers Associates Architects, the Webster County Historical Society. This project was made possible by a grant from the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs.
