2014 marks the 125th anniversary of Paso Robles becoming a city. We’re going to take a self-guided architectural walking tour to visit the historic buildings around the downtown area and beyond.

This info is taken from

Grab an historic walking tour booklet and stroll through Paso’s quaint downtown shopping district, filled with turn-of-the-20th-century architecture, plus the carefully restored Victorian mansions and Craftsman-style bungalows along Vine Street. Tour booklets can be found at the Visitors Center at 1225 Park Street and the Main Street office in the alley behind 12th Street between Pine and Park.

You can start the walking tour anywhere along the downtown map at the bottom of this post. The numbers listed on the map correspond to the Historic Buildings list in the guide booklet.
