308 S Boylan Ave: Monfort Hall built in 1858 and the home of William Boylan owner of the land that now comprises Boylan Heights. Tickets will be sold on the lawn of Monfort Hall the day of the tour, but the house will not be open.
914 W South St. was built about 1917. This Arts & Crafts style bungalow is one of the reasons some people call Boylan Heights “the neighborhood of bungalows”.
1025 W South St., an Arts & Crafts style house, was converted to a duplex in the 1930s. The current owner made a complete renovation in 2008 and brought the house back to its single family roots.
406 Kinsey Street was built about 1923 as a single family home, by 1940 this bungalow had been divided into two apartments commanding rents of $30 and $25 per month. Eventually a third apartment squeezed in before renovations began in 2002 to return the house to single family. The current owners have decorated its open floor plan in “vintage Romper Room”.
727 S Boylan Ave was built in 2007, this house is one of the rare new houses in Boylan Heights. Built in a style and scale reminiscent of the neighborhood’s origins 100 years earlier, the interior is anything but old fashioned.
715 Mountford St first showed up in this location in 1916. However, its taller second story and 19th century mantels hint at an earlier origin. Currently housing four apartments, its current residents enjoy their character filled flats close to downtown.
315 S Boylan Ave: This Colonial Revival house was built in 1923 for William Goad and his wife Maude sister of CA Dillon founder of Dillon Supply Co. Both Mr. and Mrs. Goad worked at Dillon. Their house is an excellent example of the grand houses built at the top of S Boylan Ave, near to Monfort Hall.
324 S Boylan Ave was built about 1907 in the Colonial Revival style, this house is renowned for its grand front porch with its two story Corinthian columns.
