NW Children’s Theater & School (NWCT) and the NW Neighborhood Cultural Center (NNCC) present, the 5th Annual Walking Tour: Historic Homes of Old Nob Hill, on Sunday, June 19, 2016 from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. The tour begins at NNCC (originally known as the First Church of Christ, Scientist, 1909), located at: 1819 NW Everett St., Portland, Oregon.

Tickets for this walking tour are $30 and are available through NWCT’s website: www.nwcts.org or at NNCC/NWCT the day of the event. The tour includes six historic homes in NW Portland’s Old Nob Hill. All proceeds will be utilized for improvements to the Historic NW Neighborhood Cultural Center, home of NW Children’s Theater & School and other organizations which draw thousands of children and families to the building and neighborhood annually.

This year’s tour winds through Portland’s West Hills from Lovejoy to Cornell Road. As an annual tradition the tour will include a rare glimpse into the restoration of the famously saved Goldsmith Home. Built by Portland mayor, Bernard Goldsmith, the home was designed by one of Portland’s most gifted architects, Edgar Lazarus (U.S. Customs House, Vista House at Crown Point and Pioneer Courthouse). Losing the Goldsmith Home would have been an unspeakable tragedy, but thanks to a strong neighborhood effort, and the combined funds of 10 neighbors who pooled funds, this home was saved.

Tour attendees will enjoy a visit to each of the following homes:

  • The Honeyman Home
  • (1911, Architect: David Chambers Lewis)
  • The Harmon/Neils Home
  • (1909, Architect: A.E. Doyle)
  • The Van Schuyler Home (1908)
  • The Bernard Goldsmith Home
  • (1892, Architect: Edgar Lazarus)
  • The Isaac VanDuyn Home (1895)
  • The Margaret Lutke Home (1908)

NWCT and NNCC thanks fellow event presenters The Dan Volkmer Team, US Bank and Windermere Stellar and event sponsors: Pearl Medspa, Guild Mortgage Company, Caffe Mingo, Fidelity National Title, Slabtown Tours, Uptown Hardware, and World Cup Roasters.
