Nostalgic Homes presents the Jewels of Highland Home Tour

Basha Cohen | [email protected]

HIGHLANDS ­— Experience a look at Denver’s rich past with the return of the annual Jewels of Highland Home Tour, presented by Nostalgic Homes. Tour guests will experience historic homes never before open to the public. The home voyeurs paradise is on Saturday, October 1 from Noon to  4 pm.
The 2016 Tour features eight Vintage Grand Dames in the Potter Highlands neighborhood of NW Denver. Come see Queen Anne Victorians, Denver Squares, Craftsman Bungalows and experience a “Hard-Hat” tour of the current progress of the Historic Italianate, The Bosler House, that has been a constant source of press and intrigue in Highland Park. In addition, this year’s tour will include a tour of North High School’s landmark 1911 building led by one of the architects who worked on the $ 35 million 2010-11 renovation.
As an added bonus, aside from the history and grandeur of the homes, a celebration of life tribute to one of our own local treasures, and North High’s ultimate mascot, Wally Ginn (who passed away on August 21, 2016), will precede the tour at North from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Start your Jewels of Highland home tour with a tour of the heart and mind of a man who played a gigantic role in the face of North Denver. The celebration will be held at North High School, offering a perfect segue into picking up your tickets and touring the school before you hit the Highlands in search of the past that informs our present.
Tickets are $ 25 and $ 20 for seniors in advance, $ 30 day of tour. Tour check-in on tour day – October 1st is at North High School. Please visit www.jewelsofhighlands.com for more information or to purchase tickets. They are also available at Nostalgic Homes at 32nd & Newton in Highland Square. 100% of the tour proceeds benefit Skinner Middle School, a Denver Public School serving Northwest Denver students since 1922.
