Wauwatosa Historical Society 2014 Tour of Homes

On Saturday morning, October 4th, we went to the Washington Highlands neighborhood of Wauwatosa for the Historical Society's annual Tour of Homes. This year's theme was "The Tudors of Washington Highlands," and six homes were open to be visited.

Washington Highlands is a classy neighborhood, with many large and handsome houses, and we were very interested in this tour. The homes that we could visit were all very elegant and well maintained, and fascinating to see. The most splendid home on the tour was the one at 1651 Alta Vista Avenue, a six-bedroom house with many elegant details, and a lovely view from the Heights overlooking West Washington Boulevard.

The organizers and docents did a good job managing the many attendees through the homes. Thanks to the people who shared their homes for this interesting tour!
