Edgewater Triangle House Tour, September 17

Every year since 1989, the Edgewater Historical Society has presented at least one historical house tour a year. They typically focus on an area of Edgewater approximately 1 mile in diameter, and have 10 or so historic houses to tour.  This year the area being presented is the Edgewater Triangle, 

At each home, a volunteer docent will meet you on the outside of the house, tell you something about the exterior, and then a few at a time, people will be allowed into the interior where another docent will highlight some of the interior features.

 Depending on the owner's wishes, some rooms of the house may not be available for touring.

Reservations are not required.  

To register, visit the Edgewater Baptist Church at 1401 West Hollywood Ave between noon and 4 pm (starred on the map)  and receive your Tour Book and guide.  

The cost of the tour is $25 per person, and the houses are available to tour between noon and 5 pm

The homes that are being visited are on Glenwood, Edgewater, Ridge, Hollywood and Victoria.

The event happens rain or shine!

For more details visit the Edgewater Historical Society's website.

If you look at some of the previous archives of house tours (generously maintained by the society on their website, you'll see this great advertisement for houses in the Edgewater area.  These were being sold by the founder of Edgewater, John Lewis Cochran.  It's fascinating stuff!
