Historic Provo home tour

Part of the Freedom Festival is a walking historic home tour for two evenings in July.  This year it was in the Maeser Neighborhood south of Center Street between 100 East and 400 East.

Here are just a few of the homes on the first day.  Left my camera at home on the second.

I love the character of older homes and it is always fun to see how the owners personality and style are displayed on the inside.

We were asked to wear footies over our shoes.  Great idea.

The great big trees and gardens were also inspiring.

Most of the lots were also large, unlike many new builds today.

I loved this glass collection.  I may need to look for more blue glass for my window ledge.

Many of the homes had been bumped out on the back of the house, mostly to accommodate a larger kitchen/family room area.  This little house appeared smaller from the front but was actually quite spacious.  All of the beautiful old neighborhoods is one of the reasons I love Provo.
