April 22, 2015: Stately front porches, columns, Victorian architecture and history are all elements of a successful home tour. And, Wilkinsburg’s tour will highlight five homes with these coveted features, though there is one catch: The homes are abandoned. The first-ever Vacant Home Tour, a project developed by students at Carnegie Mellon University in partnership with the Wilkinsburg Community Development Corporation and Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation, will be held in Wilkinsburg on Saturday, May 9, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is a self-guided neighborhood walking tour that is free and open to the public.
