See Lake Forest Park as it was a hundred years ago with the Shoreline Historical Museum's home and garden tour of the Alexander H. Reid home in Lake Forest Park, on September 21, 2013.

The Alexander H. Reid house was built in 1913, shortly after Lake Forest Park opened as a North Seattle Improvement Company development.

The beautiful home, its surrounding grounds, and the 100 year-old first Lake Forest Park Schoolhouse are located on 3.5 acres of the original estate, nestled in the genteel past of the community.

Order tickets online or call the museum at 206-542-7111 and pick them up the day of the tour at the time you have selected between 11:00am and 3:00pm. No day-of tickets will be issued.

There will be a Will-Call table at Third Place Commons (upper level of the Lake Forest Park Town Center), and tickets will be distributed by purchased time slot.

The home is within a short walking distance of the upper level of the Towne Centre, and the Museum will provide a courtesy shuttle for those wishing to ride back and forth. A map and extensive brochure will be given to ticket-holders the day of the tour.

Sounds like it would be an interesting tour. Too bad the per person ticket rate is so high. Just can't take the family at $25 per person.
