Roots of Racine

Roots of Racine

Historical Walking Tour

In an effort to raise awareness of downtown Racine’s rich history, Racine Heritage Museum, in partnership with Leadership Racine’s 2016 Class “The Roots”, has developed the Roots of Racine Historical Walking Tour. 

This tour highlights buildings with architectural significance and the stories behind them so get out your mobile device and take a walk down the sidewalks of downtown Racine to take a step back in time. The virtual walking tour incorporates mobile technology by allowing you to explore buildings that display the official Roots of Racine window sticker. With your mobile device, scan the QR (quick response) code to see the associated building. Be sure to keep an eye out for new businesses being added to this tour, you never know what you might discover.
