EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Rich in history, downtown Evansville has seen some major changes over the years.
Many took part in a walking tour taking them back in time.
The Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District led the walk down Main Street.
They showed historical photos giving a glimpse at how many buildings have been transformed.
The group hopes that by teaching this history, people will be encouraged to preserve the area.
"I think the fact that we had about 80 people here, and they were really into preservation speaks to peoples love of their community," Evansville city official Joshua Armstrong said. "There are all kinds of threads and things that tie together a city and without the historic fabric you lose a lot."
You can find historical information, and see some of the photos highlighted on the trip here.
