Across Wisconsin you can find quaint towns and a sense of history. Going on next weekend is a Historic Home Tour in Racine, Wisconsin. Here the Racine Journal Times wrote a nice article describing the event.
John Crimmings, Manager of First Weber’s Racine office, also contributes his thoughts toward the event here:

"Preservation Racine’s Tour of Historic Places is as much a part of Autumn in Racine as is the changing trees and falling leaves. This really is a tradition that has met with tremendous success over the years. Each year hundreds of people take part in the tour and enjoy a beautiful Fall afternoon. This year they are concentrating on College Avenue, the last cobblestone street in the city. Racine’s Southside is part of the largest Historic District in the State of Wisconsin. It features many spectacular homes that have been restored and refurbished and are excellent examples of the quality of years gone by.
On further note, specific to First Weber. Our office has always been supportive of Preservation Racine and we have served as a ticket outlet for this great event for as long as I can remember. One person within our Company, however, deserves to be recognized for her continued efforts in local preservation. Pat Murphy, a salesperson for over 35 years, continues to spearhead support for Preservation Racine and has really become the public persona of that organization and this wonderful event. There really is no way to properly thank Pat for her efforts but Racine residents, and others alike, need to know how proud we are to have Pat as part of our team."
If you like history and are in the Racine area, stop in the First Weber office (1100 N. Main) to pick up your tickets for the tour which runs Sept 27 noon – 5:30 p.m.
