Thanks to the tremendous support of longtime AHC members and the hard work of our numerous volunteers, the AHC is proud to announce the 14th Annual Kitchen Revival Tour! Year after year this self-guided tour has proven to be one of our most successful education events and 2012 should prove to be yet another fantastic must-attend event.
If you are thinking of renovating your own kitchen or maybe you just love seeing inside some of Portland’s wonderful vintage homes, regardless of the reason, this tour will delight you. Eight homes have been carefully selected by our AHC Kitchen Revival Tour selection committee to display a variety, from intact original kitchens, to those painstakingly restored to reflect the home’s original style. Whether your kitchen is big or small, you’ll see how even the most modest of kitchens can be “modernized” to meet your needs and 21st century lifestyle, while also retaining historic character and charm.
This year’s tour selection includes homes from the 1890s to the 1960s. Along the way you’ll see the fine work of local craftsmen and meet homeowners eager to share their kitchen renovation and preservation stories. This tour truly represents the AHC’s mission of inspiring people to conserve the art, craft, and context of historic buildings and places.
Please note that this tour is for ages 12 and older. Babes in arms are welcome, however.
