Welcome to the Porter County Museum’s 2019 Historical Valparaiso Home Tour, This year’s tour returns as the result of the hard work of museum staff, volunteers, and sponsors. Yet, most importantly, the home tour is back as a result of the energetic feedback from members of the Porter County’s communities, and the question most frequently asked of a museum staff: “When is the Home Tour coming back?” Well, it is today, by popular demand.
I am delighted to say that the celebration of these three meaningful neighborhoods continues with a tour of nine homes and one school. These buildings represent a variety of architectural styles while showcasing the unique characteristics of Porter County’s buildings.
Many thanks to the volunteers for donating their time, the Museum’s staff and Home Tour Committee for organizing this event, ReMax and Valparaiso First Insurance for sponsoring the tour, and of course to the homeowners for generously opening their homes to share a small part of Porter County’s rich history with all of us.
