History Center Offers Historic Automobile Row Walking Tour of Cedar Rapids

The Carl & Mary Koehler History Center is sponsoring a historic walking tour of Automobile Row in Cedar Rapids by historian Mark Stoffer Hunter on Thursday, June 7 at 6:00pm. The tour leaves from the History Center and lasts 75 minutes. The cost will be $5 for children 8 and up, $6 for adult History Center members and $7 for adult non-members.
