26th Annual Housewalk


Tickets are now on sale for the Mount Prospect Historical Society’s 26th annual Holiday Housewalk which will highlight Mount Prospect’s historic Prospect Park Country Club subdivision, south of the tracks and east of the Mt. Prospect Country Club golf course. The walk will be held from 3:30 to 9 p.m., Friday, Dec. 6.

The interiors of five private homes will be featured on the tour this year. The exteriors of two other historic homes will also be highlighted.

The homes featured this year, both inside and outside, are: 502 S. Wa-Pella Ave., owned by Jeff and Julie LaCamera; 406 S. Wa-Pella Ave., owned by the Robert Moats Family; 501 W. Lincoln Ave., owned by George and Nancy Vincent; 407 S. Hi-Lusi Ave., owned by Edward and Laura Wiertel; and 405 W. Sha-Bonee Tr., owned by Rick and Hanna Steinkuehler.

The exteriors of 415 S. Wa-Pella Ave. and 417 S. Hi-Lusi Ave. will also be highlighted with historical notes featured on a lighted podium.

All of the homes will be exciting to tour in their own ways, whether because of the historic flavor, lovely decorating or the renovation work that has been done, according to Jill Tumberger, Housewalk co-chairperson.

Tour-goers will pick up their programs at a heated tent on the green space in front of

406 S.Wa-Pella Ave. There will be refreshments offered and a display of watercolors of the featured houses, as well as the museum store housed there. The “will call” table for tickets ordered through PayPal will also be located in the tent.
