The Parkside Community Association presents the 12th Annual Tour of
Homes on Sunday, May 16th from 11:00 am – 4:30 pm. This popular tour
will have TEN outstanding homes for you to explore. Visitors are promised a
fascinating look inside historical residences in Buffalo’s beautiful Historic
District of Parkside. Some of the homes reflect their 19th century origin in
architectural style with their interiors and furnishings. Others offer an exciting
contemporary approach to city living. Onsite docents will provide history of
the homes and will be available for questions.

Come see for yourself why Parksiders and out-of-towners alike say this event
“is the best tour”. The tour begins at the Church of the Good Shepherd, on
the corner of Jewett Parkway and Summit Avenue in Buffalo. Information,
tickets, and maps will be available at the start of the tour. A mini tour of the
Darwin Martin House Complex is included in the ticket price. This
includes the Gardener’s Cottage, Barton House, and the Visitors
Center.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 the day of the tour, and $13 for PCA members. Advance tickets can be obtained by visiting the PCA office, 2318 Main Street in Buffalo or by calling the office at 838-1240 during regular business hours. Proceeds benefit the continuing work of the Parkside
Community Association. No children under the age of twelve please. Event is held rain or shine.

The Parkside Community Association is Buffalo’s oldest, largest and most active neighborhood associations in the City of Buffalo. The Parkside area contains superb examples of such diverse architectural styles such as
the American Four Square, Victorian, Colonial Revival, Craftsman, and the Arts & Crafts bungalow. The 1880 thru 1930 building period includes designs by prominent local architects E.B. Green and William Sydney Wicks.

Parkside is adjacent to Frederick Law Olmsted’s Delaware Park, The Buffalo Zoo, and the Main-Amherst business district.
