SPNA Home Tour featured in today's Tennessean

Tennessean reporter Nancy Deville covered the SPNA Home Tour, scheduled for this Sunday (Sept. 14), in today's edition of the paper. Here's a highlight:

"We are trying to involve some of the institutions since we are such a diversified neighborhood," said Susan Rodgers, tour coordinator. "People love Sylvan Park because of its feel and that it's an all-inclusive neighborhood."

Originally built as a mostly blue-collar neighborhood, Sylvan Park profited from urban renewal efforts that started in the 1990s. Although Victorian homes are sprinkled throughout, most structures were built in the 1930s.

"We have old houses that are Queen Anne style that have been updated with today's conveniences," Rodgers said. "We also have new construction that are replicas of the old-style homes. This neighborhood has gone through a lot of changes and we've changed a lot even in the last few years."

Be sure to make plans to take the tour on Sunday. See you there!
