Locals get chance to explore architecture

August 16, 2013 by  

The Mill Creek Neighborhood Historic Home and Walking Tour is to be hosted by the Greater Kent Historical Society Museum this weekend and will provide guests with the opportunity to tour their neighborhood and take in the architectural structures in the area. It will no doubt make for photo opportunities and perhaps postcard printing services will be needed at a later date.

This informational tour will feature homes in the neighborhood that range in age, with the oldest being over a century old. They include two homes from the early 1900s and three that date back to the Depression Era. All of the homes featured on the tour have been kept to the original character of the period. Guides on the walking tour will provide information about local history and the property owners who resided in each home.

The tour will begin from the Emil Bereiter House, which also goes by the name of the Kent Museum, and return there upon its completion, where guests will enjoy ice cream sundaes and other refreshments. Tickets can be bought online and the tour is self-guided, with the ticket price including a map of the tour.

Tickets for this tour are $15 per person, and it will take place tomorrow, August 17, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, leaving from the Kent Historical Museum located at 855 E. Smith Street in Kent, Washington. To learn more about this tour, or to purchase tickets online, please visit the museum’s website or call 253-854-4330.
