Tour wallace

This tour highlights the missing buildings of Wallace.

Our whole town is on the National Register of Historic Places.

It's true, we're the Center of the Universe! It's one of our tour locations.

In 1900 the population of Wallace was ~2000 people. Today our population is around 760.

Our Mission

We will transform your perspective about Wallace and its empty spaces

Our Mission

Our hometown is rich in history. Wallace was once considerably larger than it is today: our population was 3-4 times larger than it is today. This tour puts that in perspective and helps change the way people think about our town and its empty spaces. It’s easy to overlook the possibilities of what the missing buildings could have been. The empty spaces all throughout the town were likely occupied by some building or home.  We housed multiple theaters, numerous large hotels, and many more homes than you see today.

Our Vision

Look for signs in empty spaces throughout Wallace. Refer to the map below for tour locations. You can click on the markers of the map to navigate to each tour location or you can walk to each location and use your phone to scan the QR code on the sign to be taken to the website page for that location.
