2015 house tour and lecture feature John H. Howe homes
The most popular question after the Edina Historical Society's wildly successful 2013 Historic House Tour was, "When are you having another one?" The answer: Sunday, Sept. 13, 2015, when three homes by architect John Howe will be open to the public. As a preview to the tour, authors Jane King Hession and Tim Quigley will present a program on Thursday, Aug. 20, on the noted architect, known as the "pencil in Frank Lloyd Wright's hand." See our Home Tour page for more information.)
