Over the years, Madison’s very first street has been home to the city’s first fast-food lunchroom (one-minute lunch, anyone?), first high-volume grocery, and first teacher. Throw in the Majestic (Madison’s oldest continuously 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.

Meeting place: 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!

Reservations: No reservations necessary!
