Detour to access McPherson Town

ODOT has completed the northbound lanes of the Main Street Bridge reconstruction and began work on the southbound lanes on May 3, 2019. To keep the project on schedule, it was necessary to close the intersection of Main Street and Riverview Ave. to vehicular traffic. Vehicles won’t be able to turn from Main St. to Riverview Ave. and vice versa to come an go from McPherson Town. Access is now from the west only, via Riverview Ave near the Dayton Art Institute. The closure will remain until late October, 2019. Please drive carefully!

Welcome home

Watering the porch potsMcPherson Town is an historic district located just north of downtown Dayton, Ohio along the banks of the Great Miami River.

McPherson Town is significant as one of Dayton’s first suburbs and for it’s streetscapes of high style and folk Victorian Queen Anne architecture, popular in the 1880’s.

Now a progressive, diverse inner-city neighborhood, McPherson Town has gone under significant change over the last 15 years, and is part of downtown Dayton’s rebirth.
