    We have had an annual Housewalk for 38 years.  We had to cancel due to Covid last year.  We are considering doing some type of walk in September.  I would like to find out with other cities are doing?  Virtual tours?  If so could you send me some examples?

    COVID has really been a problem for resuming tours for many orgs.  But it has given our volunteer preservation carpenters time to focus on restoration of two of our historic  houses and to stabilize one.  
    In April we opened one museum house for tours + a walking tour outside of the other 5 houses and on the historic brick streets,  by appointment only, with a limit of small groups of 6 to 8 visitors.     I have attached our guidelines below.
