In just two city blocks, you’ll learn about these unique Craftsman-style bungalows that are modest yet so appealing (And you’ll be able to identify a jerkinhead!). They weren’t designed by trained architects, but by craftsmen working for the Karrels Building Company between 1924 and 1929. Meet at the small parking lot behind Marquette Elementary School in the area of 1480 Spaight St.

Pick up your complimentary large chocolate chip cookie at Batch Bakehouse, 1402 Williamson St., following the tour.

No advance reservation required! Purchase tickets the day of the tour at the meeting place.
