This year’s tour will showcase the

Historic Places, as well as a range of bungalows and other vintage homes.

Tour-goers will learn the history of each home, while gaining valuable ideas

tour homes are located in the vicinity of Berwyn’s portion of Route 66, Ogden

Participants may walk, bike or drive the tour at their own pace during the
event. Bike parking courtesy of Active Transportation Alliance.

You can visit the homes in any order you wish. Each house is staffed with
docents, providing guided tours.

be available at event check-in at the Berwyn Route 66 Museum, 7003 West Ogden
Avenue, on September 25. We will also feature some unique merchandise for your

non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve, protect and promote
architectural and historic resources in Berwyn through advocacy and education.
