The Modernist architecture of the Queen city is the focus of Touchstones Nelson’s next series of walking tours. Join local author Peter Bartl as he leads an Art Deco/Mission Revival architecture walking tour of beautiful downtown Nelson.
Explore the community in a new way as Peter encourages all to notice our newer heritage in buildings from the 1920s to the 1960s, exploring the hidden features of many buildings in the downtown core.
Peter’s book The Modern Heritage of Nelson Architecture is an invaluable source of inspiration and information, and he will bring his wealth of knowledge to this walking tour that will appeal to locals and visitors alike.
Call or visit Touchstones to pre-register and pre-pay for this amazing opportunity to explore the city, as space is limited to 15 people for each 2 hour tour. The cost is $5 for Touchstones Members and $10 for members of the public.
