The second Healy Project walking tour, this time of the North Wedge (apex of Lowry Hill East neighborhood) is set for Sunday, September 7th, beginning at 1 p.m.  The tour will start on northeast corner of Mueller Park (West 25th Street and Bryant Avenue South) and will wind around the area north of there, to Franklin Avenue and back, highlighting Healy-built houses, and including some houses by other Minneapolis master builders.

Healy researcher Anders Christensen will cover architectural history and the evolving development of the area, and Wedge historian Kathy Kullberg will provide insights into the residents’ lives and Wedge social history. As a special part of the tour, ticket holders will be shown the interior of two 1890’s houses, one of them built by Healy, the other by master builder P.C. Richardson.
