Northside House Tour

Sunday, Sep 28 from noon to 5PM, visit the Hidden Treasures of Northside House Tour.
The Northside House Tour is not a mansion type house tour. It's more about what people have done with older houses, converting buildings that weren't meant to be houses into houses (Northside had a ton of corner stores that mid 20th century zoning laws put out of business), and innovative new housing.
It's about creating and re-using household items.
There's a street of Sears homes along the tour. There are some amazing tree houses on and along the tour.
There's bottle trees, converted meat markets, big old Catholic Churches on the tour.
Did I mention that the house that had the German Shepard on the porch roof is on the tour?
And there's all sorts of places you can get brunch grub in Northside while you are in the neighborhood.

The cost is $15 in advance and $18 the day of the tour at The McKei Recreation Center @ 1655 Chase Avenue.
