WAHA presents the 2018 Holiday Tour & Progressive Dinner:
Hearthside in Harvard Heights
Saturday and Sunday, December 1 and 2
Please join WAHA “Hearthside in Harvard Heights” at our 32nd Annual Holiday Tour & Progressive Dinner! This year’s tour opens the doors to a half dozen historic Craftsman style homes – including the Lucy Wheeler Residence, designed by architects Greene and Greene – in the Harvard Heights neighborhood of the Historic West Adams District.
The Harvard Heights subdivision was announced in 1903, and soon the neighborhood was filled with the quintessential Craftsman homes that still attract residents today. One of the most notable is the Wheeler Residence, designed by the architects (and brothers) Charles Sumner and Henry Mather Greene in 1905. Today, it is the only Greene and Greene home still standing within the city limits. Along with this landmark property, visitors will also tour Arts & Crafts style homes designed by architects Charles H. McGeorge and Frank M. Tyler.
The Hearthside in Harvard Heights Holiday Tour takes place on Saturday and Sunday, December 1 and 2, with the progressive dinner tours beginning at 3 p.m. each day and departing approximately every 30 minutes after that. Please be sure to arrive early enough to tour the first house where you will be checking in. A separate course of our festive holiday menu will be served at each house, and will feature appetizers (and champagne!), soup, salad, entrée with sides, and dessert.
There is also a self-guided Sunday Walking Tour from Noon to 3 p.m. Visitors will see the same historic houses, festively decorated for the holidays, but without the food.
No high heels or, especially, spike heels, please. And be sure to wear comfortable shoes, as this is a walking tour. Please note that the century-old homes on this tour are not ADA accessible.
