During the month of May, my history teacher, Kristen Fairey, asked our class to research an area around the school and create a walking tour based on this research. I, with two others, chose to research Irving Place and give the tour on a Saturday at around 12:00. Parents and students alike signed up for our tour, where we investigated the history of Irving Place and the person whom the street was named after, Washington Irving. We all learned useful and interesting tidbits about the different buildings that line Irving Place and we were able to show our knowledge through the walking tour. It was a really fulfilling feeling to be able to bestow information that we had learned upon the community.
