ARCH annual Home and Garden Tour happens in the North Anthony Area Association on Saturday, June 25th from 10:00am until 4:00pm.
Fort Wayne’s organization for historic preservation, ARCH partners with historic neighborhoods throughout the city to strengthen neighborhoods and celebrate Fort Wayne’s fantastic historic architecture.
The North Anthony Area Association includes the North Anthony Boulevard Historic District and several other eligible historic districts including stately Kensington Boulevard. The North Anthony area is filled with a vast number of exceptional homes in an assortment of 20th century architectural styles.
The North Anthony Historic Home and Garden Tour will feature 13 stops including an 1867 Italianate farmhouse, notable Colonial and Tudor Revival houses, and unique Mission Revival and Spanish Eclectic homes. Other activities planned for the day of the tour include a silent auction, an artist market, and food trucks.
On Friday, June 24, you can join ARCH for a free pre-tour lecture. Michael Galbraith, the Executive Director of ARCH will present a talk called “Dirt track racing, George Kessler, and World War I; Why the North Anthony Association has four historic districts.” This lecture is a must for anyone interested in the North Anthony area and the immense history behind this great neighborhood.
The lecture will be held the evening before ARCH’s North Anthony Historic Home and Garden Tour at the Aulick Center at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 3425 Crescent Avenue, at 6 PM.
