The Park Ridge Historical Society will hold a bike tour of “Park Ridge Catalog Homes” on Saturday, August 25.   It will start @ 9am at the new History Center, 721 N. Prospect.

The bike tour will highlight a number of “Sears houses” along with a few other noteworthy houses.

The route is about one mile long and will last about 90 minutes while riding at a leisurely pace. The tour will stop at each home to hear a description of the house.

One stop will be where Grant Wood lived, the world famous painter of American Gothic.  This was designated a Park Ridge city landmark in 2014.

Another stop will be where the actor who played Hans Solo & Indiana Jones lived before he became a famous movie star.

Space is limited to the first 20 people.

Reservations are required by going to the website  www.parkridgehistorycenter.org   or call 847-696-1973 to leave a message.

A donation of $10.00 is suggested.  Light refreshments will be served.

A rain date will be determined later if needed.
