Hayselton home tour on tap
Friday, September 20, 2013
Jefferson City's Hayselton Drive Neighborhood is a well-known subdivision with prominent names associated with many of its homes.
Visitors will have the chance to sneak a peek inside six of those homes 1-5 p.m. Sunday during the Historic City of Jefferson’s Eighth Annual Homes Tour.
The Hayselton RiverWalk Tour will feature 1924, 1911, 1906, 1813, 1807 and 1608 Hayselton Drive.
“And Hayselton is along the Missouri River; people always like to see the river,” said co-chairman Tammy Boeschen.
Many of the homes were nominated or applied to be part of the tour, but organizers wanted to keep the number of homes to a reasonable number that visitors could visit within the four-hour window, Boeschen said.
Plus, the 30-year-old not-for-profit provides more than 100 volunteers from among its 350 members for the event, which is its largest fundraiser.
Advanced tickets are available for $12 at Samuel’s Tuxedos, the Art Bazaar and Schulte’s IGA. Tickets are available the day of the event for $15 on site.
The Hayselton neighborhood was developed primarily through the 1930s to 1950s. Unlike today’s modern subdivisions, the homes vary in architectural design including English Tudor, Cape Cod, bungalow, cottage, colonial revival and garrison.
William Searcy created the Sunset Place Addition with 80 acres in 1926. “People appreciate the beauty of the older architecture,” Boeschen said.
Mark Pauley and Rob Prenger own the Patterson Home at 1608 Hayselton Drive.
Allison and Ken Kingsbury own the Voracek Home at 1807 Hayselton Drive.
Carol and Dan Roark own the Randazzo Home at 1813 Hayselton Drive.
Alice and Mark Steward own the Cummins’ Chula Vista at 1906 Hayselton Drive.
Tami Turner owns the Suggett House at 1911 Hayselton Drive.
Karen and Kevin McHugh own the Bohrer Home at 1924 Hayselton Drive.
The tour also will include artists at work in select front yards, children operating lemonade stands and posters with more history hung around the neighborhood.
