Weekend To-Do: Quapaw Quarter Spring Tour of Homes

Posted By on Fri, May 6, 2011 at 11:32 AM


5:30 p.m., 16th and Center Sts.

A local tradition returns this weekend when the 47th Annual Spring Tour of Historic Homes returns to the Quapaw Quarter. Highlighting a few of the neighborhood's most remarkable homes, the weekend kicks off with Saturday's Evening Candlelight Tour, the annual champagne stroll through five featured houses, before taking to Trinity Episcopal for cocktails, dinner, silent auctions and live music from the Jellies. Tickets for Saturday night go for $100, but for the architecture lover with a budget in mind, the Quapaw Quarter Association will host a Sunday afternoon tour, starting at 1 p.m., with tickets at $20.

This year's featured houses include the Ragland House at 1617 Center St., the Urquhart Bungalow at 1623 Center St., the Turner-Mann House at 1711 Center St., the Rogers House at 400 W. 18th St. and the Bowman House at 1415 S. Broadway, which recently wrapped up an intensive restoration.
