Hopkins is going through some monumental changes. From apartments rising in the downtown to a growing park in the Blake Road Corridor, the character of the city is changing rapidly.

With the city undergoing so much transformation, Patch invites you to take a look back into the past and see if you can remember what some of the current landmarks used to be.

The first three are:

  • Mann’s Hopkins Cinema 6, Big Ten Restaurant and other businesses
  • Hopkins Center for the Arts
  • Oaks of Mainstreet
