The Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association (MKNA) celebrates its 40th annual Home and Garden Day Tour, Saturday and Sunday, June 8 and 9, 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The Tour is one of Indiana's largest and oldest tours of vintage homes, offering guests a view of unique architecture, innovative interior design and recent renovations.
Homes on Tour – This year's Tour features 7 homes and gardens in one of the city's most historic neighborhoods. Tour homes are selected for their interior and exterior design as well as their distinguishing architectural elements. Tour proceeds support MKNA and its revitalization efforts.
