It all started when Ronald Reagan became President. The first Wauwatosa Tour of Homes was held in 1981. It turned into an annual event in 1989, and this year, the Wauwatosa Historical Society (WHS) will be celebrating its 30th tour by returning to the Washington Highlands.
The one day event, themed “The Tudors of the Washington Highlands,” will be held on Saturday, October 4, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and features six homes in our neighborhood: three on Alta Vista Avenue (1639, 1651, and 1716), two on Mountain Avenue (1641 and 1806), and one on Hillcrest Drive (6708). This is the fifth time the tour has visited the Highlands.
