MARQUETTE BUNGALOWS: 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.
Online reservations are required.
