DC House SmartsHome
Cati and I had the pleasure of meeting Diana Kohn (President) and Lorraine Pearsall (VP for Preservation) of Historic Takoma, Inc.* Cati has been involved in the upcoming Takoma Park House & Garden Tour, having sold one of the houses on the tour (and discovering in the process that it belonged once to the daughter of Frederick Douglass!). Long story short, she was able to identify several houses on the tour as Sears Kit Houses (our specialty!), much to the delight of an owner or two. We were treated to a mini walking tour on Wednesday. It was a lovely indulgence!
Anyway, the Takoma Park House & Garden Tour is this Sunday, May 6 from 1-5 pm, rain or shine. For ticket and tour information, visit HistoricTakoma.org
There are some real beauties on the tour, ranging from old to new. Don’t miss it!
