Historic Tour of Red Oak & Heritage Hill

Take a stroll or drive along Red Oak's historic Heritage Hill Tour and
experience the community's hallmark collection of turn-of-the-century
architecture.  The tour embodies a wide range of architectural styles
including excellent examples of Queen Anne, Georgian, Italianate,
English Tudor, Colonial Revival, and Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie Style.  
The locations included on the Heritage Hill Tour were built from the
1870's through 1916.
 
The tour begins at the Montgomery County Courthouse, built in 1890 of red
Missouri limestone.  This building of Richardsonian Romanesque design
is listed on the National Historic Preservation Register
and still has the historic interior intact.  

Your tour ends at one of Red Oak's most outstanding attractions, the
Chautauqua Pavilion located in Chautauqua Park.  This pavilion,
built in 1907, is the largest covered pavilion west of the Mississippi
and is also listed on the National Historic Preservation Register. 
 
Other places of interest include the Carnegie Library, the Murphy Calendar
Company building, and the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Depot,
which has been restored to its original 1903 charm, and houses
a WWII Memorial Museum.
