About the house:

Built in 1921, this brick Colonial Revival has seen its fair share of transformation over its 100 years. Originally designed by Harry S. Angell for Henry W. Cameron, the home at 3495 Burns had fallen into disrepair by the time a young historic preservationist bought the property in 2015. A single light fixture hung in the house, the basement was visible through a missing floor in the kitchen, endless plaster needed repair, and there wasn’t a surface that didn’t need attention. After six years of rehabilitation, the home is now ready for visitors and guests. Please join us!

About the MHPN:

The Michigan Historic Preservation Network is Michigan’s statewide non-profit membership organization and the advocacy and resource group for preservationists from all backgrounds. Founded in 1981, the MHPN advocates for Michigan’s historic places because they contribute to our economic vitality, sense of place, and connection to the past. For information about MHPN, please visit our website at: www.mhpn.org.

COVID-19 Precautions:

This event will be hosted outside in the home’s lovely backyard.

Both the total guest count and size of the tour groups will be limited.

Masks will be required at all times while indoors and outdoors if social distancing is not possible.

The garden will have a variety of seating and table options for safe distancing and accommodation.

Food and beverages will be served by staff and volunteers so there will be no cross-contamination.

Due to its historic nature, the home is not barrier-free. To reach the first floor, there are four steps up onto each porch. The home is on four levels, including a basement, with some narrow stairwells. The outdoor portion of the event is barrier-free and we will have a variety of seating options.
