Look Inside Lakewood At The 2022 Lakewood House Tour

12223 Madison Avenue is a must see inside.

Too much time spent looking at your own four walls? The Lakewood Historical Society invites you to discover some of the community’s finest architecture during the Lakewood House Tour: Look Inside Lakewood, Sunday, September 11, from 1:00pm to 6:00pm. The eagerly-anticipated event is back after a four-year hiatus.

Eight historic homes provide a glimpse into Lakewood’s past with a contemporary twist. These beautiful residences include a one-of-a-kind home in a converted bank building, an iconic mid-century landmark, a property with commanding views of Lake Erie, plus Tudor, Victorian, and Colonial gems. These are the homes you’ve driven past and wondered what they look like on the inside; now’s your chance to find out.
Touring gives you a glimpse into history, where meticulous craftsmanship and quality materials were uncompromising building standards. The featured homes, all of which were chosen by community nominations, were built between1894 to 1965. While some have had recent additions and refinements, the owners have maintained their dwellings’ architectural integrity, making these residences true showcases of yesteryear.

Can’t wait to tour? You can start the House Tour weekend a day early at the Patron Party, Saturday, September 10th. The party will be hosted in a home not featured on Sunday’s tour so it’s a great opportunity to visit yet another lovely Lakewood residence. Enjoy fine food while you mingle with friends and plan your next day’s exploration.

Tickets for the Patron Party are $85 and include Sunday House Tour tickets.

Tickets to the House Tour are $30, with sales starting this Saturday at the Lakewood Arts Festival, online at lakewoodhistory.org and at the following Lakewood retailers.
