The Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association (MKNA) will host the annual MK Home Tour on Saturday June 8th and and Sunday, June 9th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. The tour was started 46 years ago to showcase some of the areas biggest, most impressive homes and has grown over the years to be the largest, longest running home tour is the state. The event is a fundraiser for the nonprofit organization that serves the Meridian-Kessler neighborhood residents and businesses.

Each year, a portion of home tour sales are given back to the community in the form of grants via the Vi Walker Neighborhood Grant Program. Organizations like Freewheelin’ Community Bikes, Reach for Youth and Coburn Place: Safe Haven have been awarded monies in the past to support their programs.

“Our goal with the MK Home Tour is to showcase the variety of homes that our neighborhood has to offer while raising funds to give back to the community,” says executive director Chelsea Marburger. “There are some impressively large estates alongside quaint bungalows, apartments, Tudors and cottages. You don’t just get one thing in MK, you get it all!”

This year’s tour will feature six homes during the day tour and a classic car show during the Twilight Party on Friday, June 7th which is a 21+ party to kick off the weekend. The party will take place at the Basile Opera Center at 40th & Pennsylvania and will feature food, drink, and live music.

“It’s a great opportunity for neighbors to get out and get to know one another for a common cause,” says 2019 Home Tour Chair Kait Schutz. “Our neighborhood is so big that it’s impossible to really know everyone. Home Tour weekend, including Twilight Tour, is a great way to have a good time while meeting neighbors and supporting our neighborhood association.”
