Walking again! The 2010 Washington Park Spring Home & Garden Tour
The blog kicked off the 2010 walking season by visiting all of the homes on the 2010 Washington Park Spring Home and Garden Tour. All of the homes in this former "streetcar suburb" were interesting, but the most appealing to the blog (details in the photos) was the Reed-McKaughan House on Cascade Avenue. The house was built in 1913, and is a mixture of Craftsman and Colonial Revival styles. A new kitchen and back porch have eased the transition to the 21st century.
