Heritage Home Tours

On an autumn day in 2003, PAL sponsored its first Heritage Home Tour.  Since then, PAL's home tours have become a popular event in La Crosse.   They've provided La Crosse residents and visitors an opportunity to see the interiors of some of La Crosse's most interesting and beautiful old homes -- homes that they'd previously only wondered about when walking or driving by -- and they've provided PAL an opportunity to increase awareness of the importance of preserving the rich structural heritage of our city.  Featured homes allow tour participants an "up close and personal" look at what careful renovation, restoration and preservation can accomplish. The photos below represent tours given from 2003-2011, and 2016. (Click on each picture below to learn about the properties own unique history)
