Save the date for Sept. 15 home and garden tour
The 42nd annual Heights Heritage Home & Garden Tour, presented by Heights Community Congress (HCC), is planned for Sunday, Sept. 15, noon to 6 p.m. This year’s selection of homes will focus on the Coventry and Fairmount neighborhoods, and showcase several elegant and historic Cleveland Heights homes, built in the early 1900s, that were designed and built by the premier Cleveland architects and builders of the era. All of the homes have maintained their original essence, often combining an old-world feel with mid-century furnishings and updated kitchens and baths.
The traditional preview party for tour sponsors, patrons and special guests will be held Saturday evening, Sept. 14, in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church’s majestic Tucker Hall. Party attendees will be greeted with a champagne cocktail, and have the opportunity to stroll through the Nicholson B. White art gallery, linger in the church’s lovely stone patio, and partake of some hearty appetizers. Lolly the Trolley will then transport guests on a sunset “sneak peak” of a select group of homes on the tour. Afterward, partygoers will be treated to a casual dinner, with food served from various tasting stations, capped off with delectable desserts and unique chocolates. Music by an ensemble of Heights High students, and a few piano selections by one of this year’s homeowner honorees, will also be a feature of the preview party.
