College Terrace Sampler
Dating from 1887, College Terrace was developed with faculty and fraternities in mind!
There is no brochure for this tour yet--but there will be a docent-led tour in June. Watch for the date!
Downtown Walking Tour
Beautiful tiles abound! We are hoping to resume a docent-led tour in 2015.
Holiday House Tour
Links to photos from past Holiday House Tours are on the Holiday House Tour page. (There is no tour planned for this year.)
Homer Avenue Heritage Walk
Old laundries, the church from Harold and Maude, charming Victorian cottages—it's all on Homer Avenue! We will have a docent-led tour this spring.
This walk gives you a feel for this wonderful neighborhood that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was Palo Alto's first historical district! Read about early Professorville residents in "Who was who in Professorville" by columnist Ward Winslow, reprinted from the Sunday, October 13, 1985 Palo Alto Times Tribune. Check back for a docent tour.
PAST's 2013 Preservation Month celebration included Saturday morning walking tours of Homer Avenue, Downtown, Crescent Park (new this year) and Professorville. Attendance grew each week. These tours were so successful that a second series was given in the early fall. Thank you tour guides Haley Stevens, Steve Emslie, Suzanne Mantell, Margaret Feuer, Sallie Tasto, Gail Woolley, and Joan Jack. Also thanks to Carol Blitzer of the Palo Alto Weekly, and Kathy Bennett and Linda Zavoral of the San Jose Mercury News for their publicity about the tours.
