Historical walking tours of Queen Anne to benefit local organizations
Posted on April 29th, 2013 by Sara Willy
A new series of walking tours highlighting our neighborhood’s real estate and architectural history begins this Sunday, with a 10am start every first Sunday through September. The tours will begin at Kerry Park, and a minimum $20 donation per person will benefit local organizations.
This series of tours will focus on the historical development of Queen Anne and the residential architecture of homes on the hill. It’ll also include information on the evolution of real estate ventures from the late 1800s to present day.
The organizers of these walks are asking for a minimum donation of $20 per person, with the tax-deductible proceeds benefitting three Queen Anne nonprofits:
- May 5th & Aug 4th walks benefit Bayview Intergenerational Childcare
- June 2nd & September 1st walks benefit Beginnings School
- July 7th walk benefits the Queen Anne Historical Society
The walking tours will be just under 2 miles, taking about 1.5 hours to complete. Limited spots are available for each walk, so if you’re interested in the history of real estate and architecture on Queen Anne, be sure to RSVP via email or call 206.271.1267.
