'A Warm Welcome to Wellington Square -- Holidays in the Heart of the City,' West Adams Heritage Association’s 26th annual Holiday Historic Homes Tour & Progressive Dinner, Saturday, December 1, and Sunday, December 2, featuring post-WWI homes built during the Roaring 20s and Art Deco era.
Most of the homes gracing the broad streets of Wellington Square reflect the eclectic styles of a vibrant young city, with Spanish, Tudor, Norman, and other "Revival" styles throughout the neighborhood. Visitors will not only tour the beautiful homes colorfully decorated for the holiday season, but will also enjoy a different food course in each house. Just added: house belonging to Dorothy Dandridge's mother!
Time and prices: Docent-led tours every forty-five minutes, 3-6:15 pm Saturday, and 3:30-6:45 pm Sunday. Prepaid reservations required for the progressive dinner tour. $85 per person. Sunday self-guided walking-only tour (no dinner) from 12 noon to 2 pm. $30.
The tour raises funds for the West Adams Heritage Association (WAHA), a nonprofit organization founded in 1983 to support preservation of the community’s architectural and cultural heritage. WAHA has grown from a small resident support group to a recognized preservation voice with hundreds of members who live in the many neighborhoods of the Historic West Adams District.
