Touring with Tallulah in Jasper
Monday, May 6, 2024
1:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Hop on Jasper’s Downtown Trolley to visit some of the town’s historic homes and churches, reimagined businesses, and newly developed parks. Learn how the community is utilizing existing assets by converting a Jewish Temple into an office and a turn-of-the-century church into condos for Downtown living. Visit the Bankhead House & Heritage Center, Jasper First Methodist Church, and the newly renovated WPA-era Sherer Auditorium/City Hall. Then, take a leisurely walking tour to learn about Jasper’s history as a home to civic leaders and actors—like Tallulah Bankhead—while experiencing downtown Jasper’s murals and the 50-Mule Team, the largest collection of specialty shops and restaurants in the region, and a business incubator pod, and learning how land banking has secured many vacant buildings in the Main Street district. Enjoy free time to explore on your own: stop into shops, grab some coffee, and savor a meal from one of the many restaurants.
