Come and spend a wonderful afternoon exploring distinctive homes and buildings in historic Caswell Hill neighbourhood. The self-guided tour, a fundraiser for Nest Saskatoon, features 8 lovely houses along with the original home of early developer Joseph Holmes and the beautiful Christ Church Anglican, the host venue. Nest, a refugee settlement group in the city, hosts the popular Secret Garden Tour each summer. This is the group's first house tour. "It's a great way to see inside some of the most unique homes in the neighbourhood and explore more than 100 years of newcomer settlement on Treaty Six territory," says Nest spokesperson Beth Smillie. The tour line-up includes lovely character homes built between 1910 to 1930, the Hayloft Home (a re-imagined 1930s grocery store) and the city's first rammed earth house. The tour starts at Christ Church after 12:30 p.m. where ticket holders receive their guide with the addresses of the homes. Tickets are $30 and must be purchased in advance. They are available on line at Ticketbud (Nest House Tour) or at: the 33rd Street Market at 410 33rd Street, Stanley Estate Dispersal at 309 33rd Street West and Turning The Tide Bookstore at 615 Main Street. The tour is not recommended for children under 12. Nest Saskatoon is a volunteer group that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.
