The Fabulous Spruce Park Centennial Historic Home Tour: Touring Eight Unique Homes Starting From The Roaring 1920's

Spruce Park

The Spruce Park neighborhood is one of those places where you can slip away into another time for awhile: enjoy the always eclectic, one-of-a-kind historic homes built from the 1920's onward that make up the hilly neighborhood--with the namesake park in the middle--then come back to reality & continue on with your day...

To celebrate the postage-stamp-sized neighborhoods 100 year birthday, the Spruce Park Neighborhood Association (SPNA) organized the Spruce Park Centennial Historic Home Tour. The list of nine homes was nicely curated, providing an array of architectural treats, including arches, towers, balconies, clay & ceramic tile roofs, large picture windows & small porthole windows, brick & cut stone quoins; there's a Spanish Eclectic style home, a Gothic Cottage, philanthropist Anna Kaseman's Pueblo Revival home, & of course National Historic Register plaques sit prominently in front of most homes in the neighborhood.
