Walk Edgewater: Edgewater Glen

Edgewater Historical Society

This neighborhood is a popular section of single family homes and two-flats developed from some of the Kransz family original farm at the end of the 19th century. In 1903 one architect, A.E. Norman, was hired to build almost two blocks of homes. Other specialties are homes of the Kransz family and some early homes by J.L. Cochran. The walk begins at the Granville Avenue United Methodist Church, on Granville at Lakewood.

There is a limit of 15 in each tour. Our tour guides, who will have microphones, will lead you through the tour, and share with you our researched brochure. Everyone must wear a face mask and keep social distancing. The fee for each tour is $15, which supports the Edgewater Historical Society Museum.

Registration required. Register here.
