Residents of Rochester's historic Maplewood neighborhood are opening their doors to the public this weekend as part of the annual Maplewood Historic Homes Tour. The tour allows visitors the opportunity to stroll along the beautiful Seneca Parkway and take a step back in time to a bygone era of the city's gilded past. The tour includes walk-ins of six beautiful, architecturally unique homes, including those in Tudor, Queen Anne, and Colonial Revival styles. Along the way guests can stop to enjoy a variety of musical performances along the Olmstead Mall.
The tour will be held on Saturday, September 14, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. and will run rain or shine. Advanced tickets are already on sale for $10 per person and $8 for senior citizens and can be purchased at Parkleigh (215 Park Ave.), The Peppermill Restaurant (1776 Dewey Ave.), and Creative Hands (1011 Dewey Ave.). Additionally tickets can be purchased the day of the tour for $12 at the tour headquarters at St. Luke's Tabernacle on 1261 Dewey Ave. For additional home tour and ticket information call 458-3460 or visit maplewood.org.
