Three New Exterior Architectural Tour Routes for 2017!
Have you ever wondered about the history behind the architecture that gives our town such great character? Join Proud Neighbors of Collingswood’s second annual docent-led Architectural History Walking Tour of three residential areas on Sunday, October 15 (Rain date: Sunday October 22.) Learn more about how our great town has changed, yet saved distinctive architectural elements. (All homes are privately owned and not open to the public.)
Spend the afternoon discovering something new about our town and meeting your neighbors! Three exterior tour routes spotlight architectural historical elements in residential areas along Lakeview Drive, plus Park, Stokes and Collings Avenues. Some of the sites are in the Collingswood Residential Historic District and on State and National Registers of Historic Places. Enjoy one route or all three; just show your Proud Neighbors wristband.
If you enjoyed walking with our docents on last year’s tour, this year you can discover three new tour routes. Enjoy all three routes for one price of $10 per person for a wristband. Docents will provide an enlightened overview of architectural style and history of exterior sites along the walking tours.
Starting locations are at Park & Dayton Avenues (BLUE ROUTE), Lakeview Drive & Park Avenue (GREEN ROUTE) or Collings at Bettlewood Avenue (RED ROUTE). Please meet us at your starting location and time indicated on your ticket. Bring your ticket to exchange for a wristband.
Each tour segment is 45 minutes. After your starting tour is finished, proceed to another tour route on your map i.e. BLUE, GREEN, or RED to start another segment. Tours begins on the hour from noon to 3pm. Capacity is limited to 15 for each route. Please join another route if yours is too crowded.
