  • Overview

    On Saturday, June 9, from 9am-3pm, the Beaverdale Neighborhood Association ("BNA") will sponsor its 2nd Biennial Beaverdale Tour of Homes event.  The BNA has long wanted to showcase the beauty, nostalgia & diversity comprised within the Beaverdale community.

    This event serves as the perfect forum for visitors to explore & learn about Beaverdale’s character, history & charm.  Seven or more Beaverdale families will open their homes to the public for viewing. Guests can enjoy studying the unique architectural features & decor of a variety of homes, ranging from a classic 1.5-story Beaverdale Brick, to a 2-story Arts & Crafts home with a finished carriage house. Also included are a Mid-Century Modern ranch, a 2-story Farmhouse built in 1917 & a funky new home, built to maximize energy efficiency & make use of an unusual lot size.  

    Many of the homeowners have undertaken major renovations or expansion projects, so this event will be a great opportunity to find remodeling ideas.  

    After completing the Tour, guests can walk to downtown Beaverdale to enjoy a beverage at a local restaurant or shop at some of Beaverdale's “Mom & Pop” storefronts.

    Advanced tickets cost $12/person & are available for purchase at www.MIDWESTIX.com.  A limited number of pre-printed tickets will also be available at the Beaverdale Grounds for Celebration store (2645 Beaver Ave.).  On the day of the event, tickets can be purchased for $15/person.  Proceeds will be used for beautification projects in Beaverdale.  Look for more details at www.beaverdale.org or www.facebook.com/Beaverdale.tourhomes
