Saturday, May 4, 2019 - 11:00 am @ 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM
Merril Court Townhomes
901 Harvard Ave. East

Have your cake and gossip too as we visit Seattle’s only residential Landmark District featuring a wealth of upscale, early 20th century architecture. Harvard/Belmont is a veritable portfolio of the finest designers of the day: Charles Platt of New York and Hornblower and Marshall of Washington, D.C., as well as prominent area architects, including John Graham, Sr., Charles Bebb and Carl Gould, Kirtland Cutter, Andrew Willatsen, Arthur Loveless, Freed Anhalt, and A. H. Albertson. They provided innovative plans, a high level of craftsmanship and beautifully landscaped courtyards, which gives this neighborhood its distinctive character.

Tickets are free, but will sell out, so please register to confirm your spot!  The tour will be offered at 10 and 11 am on May 4.
