Queen Anne Historical Tours: Presented by Nicole Demers-Changelo

QA Historical Tour Poster Windermere agent, Nicole Demers-Changelo, is hosting a monthly Historical Walking Tour in Seattle’s Queen Anne neighborhood. The theme of the tour is Real Estate Speculation and Architectural Innovation within Queen Anne. Nicole states, “In particular, we will review the evolution of real estate ventures and architectural approaches from the late 1800’s to the present.”

Nicole is able to present a unique perspective to this tour, as she is also an architect. She began her career drafting and designing spaces. She is also immersed in the history of various architecture and has spent much time researching the lovely historical character which embodies the Queen Anne community.

The tours are scheduled for the first Sunday of the month May to September, beginning at 10 am. You will need to reserve a spot on the tour by calling 206-271-1267, or sending an email to andition@windermere.com. Also, a minimum tax-deductible $20 donation is recommended, with the proceeds benefiting 3 Queen Anne nonprofit organizations. Payment can be a check made out directly to the benefiting non-profit, or cash. Tour meet up spot is Kerry Park, 211 W. Highland Drive. The tours are approximately an hour and a half long; the walking distance is less than two miles. Dress for the weather – tours will occur rain or shine!

The May 5th and Aug 4th tours benefits the Bayview Intergenerational Childcare, “which harnesses the excitement of youthful exploration to provide a place for growth and learning; children develop a positive attitude towards age and disability from frequent interaction with the residents of Bayview.”

The June 2nd and September 1st tours benefits Beginnings School, “which provides a place for children to develop intellectually, emotionally, and physically through social interaction and individual exploration.”

The July 7th tour benefits Queen Anne Historical Society, “which has the goal of preserving the historic heritage of the Queen Anne community.”

If you would like to participate in a tour, but have little ones and need to use a stroller, Nicole is coordinating abbreviated tours with Twirl Cafe. Check their calendar for details.
