Located in the Allegheny West Historic District on Pittsburgh’s North Side, each home or garden on the tour will provide a unique setting for guests to enjoy a wine and tapas course. The guided tour starts at historic Holmes Hall and by the end guests will have visited six additional homes, gardens or other historic structures and enjoyed a delightful variety of wines and specialty foods chosen just for this event.
We are excited to announce for this year’s tour, guests will visit two properties designed by famed architect H.H. Richardson for which the style ‘Richardsonian Romanesque’ is named. Most well-known as the architect of the Allegheny County Courthouse located on Grant St. downtown; Allegheny West features several more examples of his work as well as additional homes in a similar style.
The event is a walking tour through approximately 6 square blocks of our neighborhood and many of the private houses have steps that must be negotiated so please plan accordingly. The tour happens rain or shine and will not be canceled for weather.
