PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE - HISTORIC BUILDINGS OF STUART
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2013
10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.


The Stuart Area Restoration Association, founded in 1973, is celebrating its 40th year. We welcome you to celebrate with us with this year's tour of historic buildings:  "Past, Present & Future - Historic Buildings in Stuart". 

Named for United States Senator, Charles Stuart, who purchased land from Frederick Woodward the Stuart Neighborhood is unique in its diversity of housing styles and types.  Bordering downtown Kalamazoo, the Stuart neighborhood includes a remarkable collection of Italianate, Colonial Revival, and Queen Anne residences.  Most of the Stuart Neighborhood is within the Stuart Historic District listed in the National Register of Historic Places and designated by the City of Kalamazoo. 

Step into the Stuart neighborhood and one can imagine how things might have been!  Today the neighborhood is a collection of lifestyles and passions.  From professionals, to students, homeowners and renters the Stuart Neighborhood is a great place to call home (or a 'home' for the workplace). Walkability, bike-ability, cultural diversity and close proximity to Kalamazoo College, WMU and downtown Kalamazoo, the Stuart Neighborhood has it all!

On this tour, historic homes and commercial buildings will be open to those who wish to witness the various ways one can live and work in an older building.  We welcome you to celebrate the Stuart Neighborhood by participating in this year's tour.
