Mt Vernon Brick House Tour
The Friends of Historic Preservation is holding a Mt Vernon Brick House Tour to raise awareness and funds for brick houses in the community.
Attendees should begin the tour at Caroline and Jim Kelly’s house (601 1st Ave SW) and park at the Mount Vernon Fire Station parking lot that is located behind their house off 2nd Ave SW. A tent will be set up at this first stop where visitors can turn in their tickets and have their hands stamped for the rest of the tour.
The homes on the tour are in different state of repair. Some are newly purchased and at the beginning stage of repair, and others are almost completely restored.
