Tour showcases historic Owosso homes

BY ANTHONY RIZZO

For the first time in six years, the city of Owosso will open its doors to several of its historic homes in the area Saturday.

This 2013 Owosso Historic Home Tour will feature local historian tour guides stationed at every property to welcome guests, showcase each property and answer questions.

Schaffer Fox is with the Owosso Historical Commission.

“Owosso actually has a higher concentration of historic homes with unique architecture details than any other city in Michigan. It’s a little known fact. We have nearly 1,000 homes that were built from the beginning of 1836 through 1928, and over 600 of those homes have unique architectural details,” Fox said.

Fox said the community is proud of the history Owosso holds within its homes.

There will be 19 properties on the tour.
