Mason City Walking Tour


An 80-page booklet with photos and maps to 71 architecturally significant buildings in Mason City is available at the Architectural Interpretive Center Gift Shop (next to the Stockman House), the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum, the Historic Park Inn Hotel, the Mason City Visitor Center, and Music Man Square for $5. Available for $7.25 by mail, postage and handling included. Call 641-423-1923 to order.

The guide contains history and descriptions of many local buildings, including but not limited to those designated Prairie School, and is a valuable tool for visitors with an architectural interest. It is also a great resource for all of us to learn more about the city's prominent homes and other structures.
