    South-South Street Historical District

    13 N. South St., Wilmington, OH, 45177

    Why not consider taking an architectural walking tour of Wilmington's S. South Street Historical District. This area is on the National Register of Historic Places. There is minimal preparation before your group begins their trek. The Clinton County Historical Society has a booklet that gives a descriptive narrative for the homes in the District. For a $2 donation (to cover printing costs) you can have the pertinent information needed to begin the S.S.H.D. Walk. Other necessary gear includes a pair of good walking shoes and sunglasses if it's a sunny day. Now you are ready to begin. If you haven't taken Architecture 101 at your local community college, be prepared to learn something on your walk. The booklet will take you house by house. You'll learn when each was built, the architect's name in some cases, specific features of each house, and a glossary of architectural terms is included to help you interpret what you read and what you see. An Architectural Walking Tour can be obtained at the Clinton County Historical Society or at the Clinton County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
