Mark your calendars for Sunday, October 4, for the Fall REO Neighborhood Tour, featuring the Hanscom Park area.
Tickets for REO members are $10 each or two for $15. Non-member prices are $15 apiece or two for $25. Those who join or renew their Restoration Exchange Omaha membership for 2016 will receive their tour ticket is FREE.
Nine homes and two churches will comprise this year’s tour. A tour booklet that includes the histories of the featured homes is included. Andrew Hanscom and James Megeath donated the land for Hanscom Park in 1872; the city developed it in 1889. Several tour homes are a century old or older; a few are of the mid-century variety.
Tickets are available online at the REO website after September 7 or on the day of the tour on the east side of the Center Mall, at 40th and Center Streets.
You can drive, take the shuttle or bike an easy route. The tour is sponsored by the American Institute of Architects-Omaha and the Midtown Neighborhood Alliance.
