Gems of South Mission Hills
This years walking tour includes guided walks through this delightfully charming neighborhood. Guests will experience an extensive variety of architectural styles built over many decades, one home dates all the way back to 1888. Docents will lead participants along a one-mile route, explaining various architectural styles and pointing out salient elements. The history of the neighborhood, and its houses, including stories and legends of residents, will be detailed.
New this year, seven seminars and workshops will begin on the hour in the auditorium of Francis Parker Lower School. The first presentation, entitled Gems of South Mission Hills, The Talk without the Walk, begins at 10 AM. Other topics include Early 20th Century Entry Doors and Millwork; Is There a Dragon in Your Chimney?; Historic Designation and the Mills Act Explained; The Effect of Historic Designation and the Mills Act on Present Day Real Estate Values (a follow-up to the Narwold Report); Can I Do That? An explanation of Additions and Rehabilitations following the Secretary of the Interiors Standards.
Twelve exhibitors will have displays in Parkers courtyard throughout the day. They will share their expertise and be available to answer questions.
Food trucks will be at Parker School for your convenience. And, as always, complimentary homemade cookies and lemonade will await guests at the conclusion of the tour.
