For the first time in 20 years, a Greene and Greene Interiors tour will allow guests inside private homes in the historic Park Place neighborhood, otherwise known as “Little Switzerland.”

Charles and Henry Greene, considered masters of the American Arts & Crafts movement, designed this one private garden and five private homes, in their “woodsy aesthetic,” between 1902 and 1915.

The tour, on Sunday, April 22nd, will take you “along Arroyo Terrace and North Grand Avenue, all within easy walking distance of The Gamble House.”
