What’s a Jerkinhead?

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.


Thursdays June 3 and August 12 at 6 p.m.; Saturdays July 3 and September 11 at 11 a.m. Tours are approximately 1 hour in length.
