2007 WWP Home Tour: The Surprise Inside

WWPNA is proud to present the 2007 West Washington Park Home Tour on Saturday, September 8, 2007 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year’s tour offers a great deal with eight homes in the 900-1200 blocks of South Clarkson, Emerson and Ogden streets. Styles range from classic early century bungalows and duplexes to Victorians to a late 1940s era bungalow.

This year’s theme, “The Surprise Inside”, speaks to the fact that while these homes may look fairly typical on the outside, once you step inside they really shine. The homeowners have shown tremendous creativity in construction, materials and use of space.

Even though the tour is more pedestrian friendly this year than in years past, Mile High Pedicabs will be on hand to offer rides between venues. As in the 2005 tour, the Washington Street Community Center, at the north end of the tour route, will be offering a make-your-own sundae bar for only a dollar.

Advance tickets are $12 and will be available beginning August 6 at Classic Homeworks, 281 South Pearl St.; the Washington Street Community Center, 809 South Washington St.; and Lincoln Elementary School, 710 South Pennsylvania St. Tickets are $15 the day of the tour and will be available at each home. WWPNA members receive a $2 discount.

Proceeds will benefit WWPNA, Lincoln Elementary School and the Washington Street Community Center.

West Wash Park Home Tour scheduled for September 8, 2007

Mark your calendars and plan to attend the 2007 West Washington Park Home Tour scheduled for Saturday, September 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There will be eight homes featured on this year's tour, concentrated in the southeastern part of the neighborhood making walking easier. Pedicabs will also be available. Other activities include a repeat of last tour's sundae bar, live music, a raffle and (hopefully) online ticket sales beginning August 1. Keep checking this page for the latest information.

Proceeds from the Home Tour benefit WWPNA, the Washington Street Community Center and Lincoln Elementary School.

  • Publicize the need for planning committee volunteers, host homes, and day-of volunteers.
  • Send out periodic press releases to other RNOs, neighborhood papers and local media.
  • Contact other tours for publicity.
