Tremont Trek historic house tour

A beautifully refurbished fire station is one of the historic homes on the Fifth Annual Tremont Trek Home Tour on Saturday, June 24th, at 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. This is a guided tour of six homes that includes dinner and wine at each stop, for those willing and able to pay the $95 fee. (Diane DiPiero. "Fire-station home one jewel on annual Tremont Trek." Plain Dealer. Thursday, June 8, 2006. Page __.) Unlike other local historic home tours, Tremont's doesn't provide an alternative for people who cannot afford to pay that much. The appeal of having fewer people traipsing through the houses is understandable and the fundraising returns may be higher than a traditional tour, but the lesser exposure of the neighborhood to potential residents would seem a lost opportunity for the neighborhood's future.
