If you drive through the central part of town, you've probably seen the Manhattan Heights neighborhood. It has homes that were built in the early 1900s, and is one of the prettiest areas of town. This weekend, you will be able to take a walking tour of a part of the neighborhood and find out the history of the area. Getting up close and personal to the amazing architecture and parks in this area of town can't compare to driving through.

The tour kicks off at 11 a.m. outside of the Memorial Park Library at 3200 Copper Avenue. The tour will feature Memorial Park, the Federal Smelter, Crockett Elementary, the White-Oaks-El Paso Northeastern Railroad tracks, Granite Rock and several homes in the neighborhood.

A $10 per person entry fee will go toward historical exhibits at the Downtown El Paso Public Library. Bring along a hat or umbrella and water. For more information, you can call 307-3748 or email fmelphist@yahoo.com.
