2012 Edgewater Home Tour

Have you ever said to yourself, “Gee, I wish I could get a guided tour through some of the antique homes in Edgewater”?

The Edgewater Historical Society (5358 N. Ashland Ave) has been offering at least one Home Tour every year since 1989. On Sunday, September 16, 2012, we will be featuring the Highlands of Edgewater neighborhood and, for a $25 donation per person, you will receive a guided tour through several of its antique homes. You will also receive a souvenir Tour Booklet containing a map of the neighborhood and descriptions of each home on the Tour.

At each home, a volunteer docent will greet you and tell you something about the exterior of the house. You will then be escorted with others in a group to tour the inside of the house, where another volunteer docent will highlight some of the features of the interior.

Reservations are not required. Register at St. Mary Eritrean Orthodox Church (star on the map above) between Noon and 4:00 p.m. and receive your Tour Booklet and map. The address of the church is 6350 North Paulina St. The homes are on Hermitage, Paulina and Granville, and will be open from Noon until 5:00 p.m.

To visit all featured homes involves walking less than one mile (starting at the church), using the map in the Tour Guide as reference.

To whet your appetite, there are small photos of some of the homes expected to be on the tour on the EHS website
