Join us for a tour of five, private kitchens in Wooster on Saturday, September 20th from 1:00-5:00pm. Featured this year are homes along historic Founder’s Row:
– Marcia Blum (Gasche House B&B), 340 N. Bever;
– Patti and Bill Older, 408 N. Bever St.;
– Susan and John Beno, 415 N. Bever St.;
– Alexsandra Davis and Greg Lubelski, 428 N. Bever St.;
– Peg and President Grant Cronwell (The College of Wooster President’s House), corner of Beall Ave. and University St.
Starting in the 1840s, the homes boast a variety of decor from an early 1900s period home, to arts and crafts decor, to a beautiful and usable kitchen pantry, to a stunning Victorian decor. The Founders Row neighborhood is marked by period signposts and banners in front of many of the Bever Street homes that were constructed from the early beginnings of Wooster through the era of the Roaring 1920s.
All four homes along Founder’s Row are close to each other to permit tickets holders to park once and walk to all four. Then, you can drive (or take the 10 minute stroll ) to the the College of Wooster President’s Home, which was built in the late 1920s. Get your tickets soon before they are gone!
Tickets are $20 a person, $35 a couple and are available for purchase at Buehler’s Milltown, downtown, Orrville, and the Wooster Book Company. The fundraiser will benefit the operation of the Wayne County Historical Society.
