This walk is a bit out-dated, but you can still get a feel for this wonderful neighborhood that is listed on the Register of Historic Places and was Palo Alto's first historical district! Read about early Professorville residents in "Who was who in Professorville" by columnist Ward Winslow, reprinted from the Sunday, October 13, 1985 Palo Alto Times Tribune.

 

PAST's 2013 Preservation Month celebration included Saturday morning walking tours of Homer Avenue, Downtown, Crescent Park (new this year) and Professorville. Attendance grew each week. These tours were so successful that a second series was given in the early fall. Thank you tour guides Haley Stevens, Steve Emslie, Suzanne Mantell, Margaret Feuer, Sallie Tasto, Gail Woolley, and Joan Jack. Also thanks to Carol Blitzer of the Palo Alto Weekly, and Kathy Bennett and Linda Zavoral of the San Jose Mercury News for their publicity about the tours.
