Whew! The doors just closed and we've sold the last of our advance tickets for tomorrow's Edina Historic Home Tour. We will have a fantastic turnout and (fingers crossed) great weather for a tour.
Since I am now locking up and going home, I thought I'd answer a few questions that have come up today,
I ordered online - how do I get my ticket? Check in at any of the three homes (addresses are on your receipt and listed below) to pick up your ticket. We do have a list of online reservations, but please bring your receipt in case there are any questions.
Where can I buy tickets the day of the tour? The addresses weren't listed in any of the newspapers.
You can buy tickets at any of the three homes tomorrow only, from 1 to 5 p.m. Tickets are $20; please note that we accept cash or check only.
The homes are (see map here)
1886 Baird house - 4400 West 50th Street
1929 Country Club District Mediterranean - 4506 Arden Ave
1912 Morningside bungalow - 4006 44th Street West
We deliberately did not publish the addresses in advance. People have been known to knock on homeowners' doors and ask to buy tickets in the weeks before a tour, and we didn't want our wonderful tour participants to have to field ticket questions every day leading up to the tour.
Do children need a ticket? Yes.
Where can I park? You may park at Wooddale Park, at the intersection of Wooddale Avenue and West 50th Street and on the street where allowed. Because the three homes are close together, please consider walking or biking between homes.
Thanks to the great organization skills of tour chair Dianne Plunkett Latham, we've had very few questions. We're also fortunate to have volunteer docents from three awesome community organizations - Edina Garden Council, League of Women Voters of Edina and Morningside Woman's Club -- who will be available at each house to answer questions.
Before you head out to the tour, please note:
I will be selling tickets the Baird house tomorrow, so say hello, if you have a chance. I'll be the one with the "Marci Matson" name tag and a big smile because I'm so happy with our turnout for our first Historic Home Tour.
