This tour will offer a look at and some of the history of the city's waterfront park and of a section of what is today known as the historic old northeast, an area developed by C. Perry Snell. He was one of the city's early leading developers and  also a key supporter in the effort to create the city's downtown waterfront park that was dedicated in 1910. The historic old northeast is one of five National Register Historic Districts in the city. 

The tour's starting point, at the "human" sundial (pictured), was dedicated in November 2010 in celebration of the waterfront park's centennial anniversary. One can determine the time of day by standing on the sundial and seeing where your shadow is cast on the sculpture by local artist Eric Higgs.
