Just in time for the last day of kitchen month, tickets are now available for the Architectural Heritage Center's 11th Annual Kitchen Revival Tour. In past years the tour has included seven or eight well-preserved, restored or renovated specimens of historically accurate kitchens, and this year promises to offer no less — with the addition of Pittock Mansion, a turn-of-the-century architectural jewel.
The kitchens aren't all grand or antiquated; rather, the tour has a two-fold purpose that aims to both educate visitors on how the kitchen has evolved from Queen Anne to Mid-Century style, and also to offer ideas for affordable ways to update an old kitchen while still maintaining its original character.
The pictures above are all from the 2007 tour.
