Maywood Historic Home House Walk

The North Maywood Community Organization will be hosting it's 5th annual Historic Home House Walk next Sunday July 11 2010. New on the walk this year is the George Stahmer House, built in 1913 and shown in the photo. The Stahmer House is a Prairie School design by architect William Drummond. Maywood has 17 houses on the National Register of Historic Places with more eligible, some of which will be open for interior viewing. The starting point for the tour will be 1st Congregational Church at 400 N. 5th (corner of 5th and Erie), time will be 1-5PM and cost $15. This should again be an exciting year for those interested in historic homes and architecture and a great opportunity to view an often overlooked community.
