Have you ever been curious about what goes on behind some of the closed doors, in and around the city?
Doors open Edmonton gives us all a great opportunity to discover what lies behind some interesting doors. Guided tours and lots of inside information help bring these properties into the public eye.
The event runs July 3rd - 8th and allows visitors to take free guided tours of architecturally significant buildings and places. These could be heritage homes, new homes, commercial buildings or behind the scenes tours at museums, archives, theatres, commercial buildings and more.
Visit the Otto Reiher Cottage; one of the many historic properties being celebrated during the Historic Festival & Doors Open Edmonton 2012 sponsored by the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton. Otto Reiher's Cottage is representative of how a working-class family lived in the 1930s. The cottage which was restored in 2006, once belonged to a coal-miner has been updated for the modern family, but maintains its historic charm. The cottage is currently under consideration for provincial historic designation.
