Where did the City’s second longest-serving mayor live and what did he accomplish (don't overlook his sister's accomplishments)? What happened to the Ship Street Canal?
Present – See how today's District is changing again… new restaurants, park, pedestrian bridge... new residents and businesses moving in... old buildings finding exciting new uses.
Future – Tangible evidence of the future is all around in buildings under construction and surveyors' markers indicating proposed projects.
