As an added bonus, here's a link the yesterday's Standard-Examiner story, which also has some good things to say about this great community event:
Turning back the pages of time
Last year, based on community support, the Foundation was able to donate $10,000 to the Ogden High School Capital Campaign. The board hasn’t made final determinations on where all of this tour’s funds will go, but Ogden High and Union Station are among the causes they'll be looking at supporting this year. All proceeds are returned to the community for historic preservation.

We hope you'll all mark your calenders and plan to attend.

I'll definitely be supporting this fine long-standing civic-minded community organization this Saturday by attending the tour. Always a great event to see Ogden's fabulous historic homes.

A hearty salute to the Heritage Foundation and all the good work they do to protect and preserve our architectural history.

If it were not for people like these folks, arrogant know nothing politicians like Godfrey would tear them all down and build parking lots! Sort of like former Mayor Dirks did with Washington between 22nd and 25th a couple of generations ago.
