Mount Prospect Historical Society's Housewalk Tickets on Sale Nov 1st
Tickets go on sale November 1 for the Mount Prospect Historical Society’s 30th annual Holiday Housewalk, which will highlight six Centennial-age homes around the Village. The walk will be held from noon to 5:30 PM, Sunday, December 3.
The interiors of six private homes, built between the 1880s and 1915, will be featured on the tour this year. Since they will be spread around the Village and not in one neighborhood, the walk will be held in the afternoon.
The homes featured this year are:
- 808 E. Central Rd., owned by Steve and Lisa Haynes
- 122 N. Emerson St., owned by Tom and Kathy Schultz (pictured)
- 13 S. Maple St., owned by Chris and Liz Jannusch
- 218 S. Emerson St., owned by Ed and Mary Verschoor
- 222 S. Emerson St., owned by Steve and Kelly Meersman
- 1702 W. Myrtle Dr., owned by Brian and Wendy Lambel
The tour will begin at the Mount Prospect Historical Society campus, 101 S. Maple St., where refreshments will be offered, the house and school museums will be open and artwork of the featured houses displayed. Museum store items will also be sold there. Parking will be available along neighborhood streets.
Non-refundable tickets will be sold for $28 each through December 2 at The Huntington Bank, 50 N. Main St.; Mount Prospect State Bank, 299 W. Central Rd.; Busse Flowers and Gifts, 100 E. Northwest Hwy.; River Trails’ Weiss Center, 1500 E. Euclid Ave.; Lions Park Recreation Center, 411 S. Maple St.; Millie’s Hallmark, 1024 S. Elmhurst Rd. and Dave’s Specialty Foods, 105 W. Prospect Ave., and through November 30 at the Dietrich Friedrichs House museum, 101 S. Maple St.
Last-minute decision-makers may also purchase tickets on the day of the walk, beginning at 11:30 a.m. at the museum campus, but the cost will be $30 per person at that time.
