Preservation Alliance of Greater Akron's Historic Home Tour

Posted July 31, 2014

On Saturday, July 19, two city trolleys loaded with people passionate about preservation, architecture and Akron history were able to tour four beautiful homes in West Akron on the Preservation Alliance of Greater Akron's Historic Home Tour....and the homeowners said I could take pictures to share with all of you! 

This post will be the first of four posts where I share interior and exterior photos of the homes we toured that day. Three of the homes were on Mayfair Road, and the fourth and final home, where a lavish reception was held, was "The Anchorage" located on Merriman Rd. 

The first stop on the tour was at 875 Mayfair Rd. The brick Tudor Revival home was built in 1929 for Joseph and Gladys Swain (and is currently on the market!) As much as I love the street view of these residences, I REALLY love seeing the backyard getaways of homes like these. 

I'll post the second home's photos next week. Until then, if you'd like to get to know more about Preservation Alliance of Greater Akron, you can click here to be directed to their facebook page.

Posted July 8, 2014

It's been four years since we opened our doors for business...time sure does fly when you're having fun!

Please join us on Saturday, July 12, from 12-6, for our 4th Anniversary Open House!

We will be celebrating that day by highlighting the great local artists whose work we sell at Hazel Tree Interiors. There is a new show opening at the open house as well: "Burning The Oil", the art of Matt Miller and Joshua Davis.

In addition to the new show opening, we'll have refreshments, kid's crafts all day, live music from 1:30-4:30, our signature take-home gifts, and lots of laughter (of course!)

We hope to see you,

Karen, Jon, Rachael, and Claire

P.S. Right across the way, there is a wonderful event happening at the Glendale Steps on July 12 and 13. Check this out: https://www.facebook.com/events/684268661621928/
