Neighborhoods of Shaker Square Home Tour

The second Neighborhoods of Shaker Square Home Tour, featuring unique single and double family-homes, luxury condos and apartments, takes place Saturday, September 17, from 2:00 ? 6:00 p.m. The home tour is designed to showcase the historic Shaker Square neighborhood as a vibrant community in which to live, work, and play.

An exciting, new addition to the home tour is a site specific sculpture installation by artist, Ian Petroni, who will create a piece entitled ?Invasive Species,? using vinyl siding that was recently removed from a Larchmere home. The home is currently being restored to its original historic character. The goal of this installation will be to provoke critical thought about the use of toxic, un-sustainable building materials.

Tickets can be purchased online in advance at www.shad.org for $15. Day-of-event tickets can be purchased for $20 at Sergio?s Sarava on historic Shaker Square where the tours begin. Event proceeds will benefit a legacy gift to the Neighborhoods of Shaker Square. The Home Tour is supported by Shaker Square Area Development Corporation (SHAD), who also serves as the non-profit fiscal agent for the project.
