House History Walk, Sept. 30

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

Ever wonder about the history of your house, such as when it was built, who were the previous owners, etc.? Join us for two upcoming house history walks where we’ll be exploring the history of some of your neighbors’ homes.

A house tour focused on the Elmwood Park neighborhood on Thursday, September 30th at 6pm. We’ll be meeting at Friendship Park to begin this tour.

The history walks will be a great opportunity to learn more about some of the homes in your neighborhood and you’ll also learn how you can find out the history of your own home.

North By Northwest Neighborhood has created a House Research Guide booklet that provides some tips and tools about how to research the history of your home. Booklets will be distributed at the walks.The first walk, scheduled to meet at Fairview Park on Thursday, September 16th, was postponed because of rain and will be rescheduled for a date in October.
