Along Xenia Avenue in Yellow Springs, a great collection of Greek Revival and Federal style buildings survive from the early years of the settlement. A student-led research project will work to uncover their histories this summer, culminating in a walking tour along the street. Discover the history of Yellow Springs, from its establishment as a utopian community in 1825 to the arrival of the Little Miami Railroad twenty years later, through the remarkable structures that have been actively used for over 150 years. Meet outside the Winds Café at 215 Xenia Avenue in Yellow Springs.
