Front and Main

Looking East up Main Street
Front and Main

As we cross Front and Main on the East Side, take a look up Main Street to your right and imagine its 1929.  Now picture this, Main Street east of Front, was widened by moving all the buildings along the south (or right) side back 15 feet. All the basements were excavated, and large rollers were placed under the buildings so pulleys and levers could be used to slide them back. 

 

Head north, past Main on Front toward Birmingham. As you make your way up Front Street, listen to the "Birmingham" tour and move north to Consaul. Turn left at Consaul (it seems odd but trust us), turn around and park at Consaul and Front, pointing toward Packo's. Be prepared to turn right (south) on Front Street.
