Over the years, Madison’s very first street has been home to its first fast-food lunchroom (one-minute lunch, anyone?), first high-volume grocery, and Madison’s first teacher. Throw in the Majestic (Madison’s oldest continually operating theater), an Art Deco high-rise and a Turkish bath and you’ll realize there’s a lot about this well-visited street you may not know. Meet by the large granite arch at the intersection of King, Webster, and Doty Streets.

After the tour, enjoy a free beer or soft drink at the Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company, 123 E. Doty St.
No reservations required! Buy tickets the day of the tour at the meeting place.
