Vacant homes featured in tour


In May, 300 people came to the vacant home tour that was sponsored by the District 4 Dayton’s Bluff Community Council on the East Side of Saint Paul. Since then eight of the buildings on the tour have been sold, according to Karin DuPaul, community organizer for District 4.

1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Building on that success, District 4 is sponsoring a one-day tour of eight homes on Sunday, October 26 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Maps with home information and locations can be picked up at the Dayton’s Bluff Community Council office at 798 East 7th Street at the beginning of the tour. The District Council has more information.

Du Paul says, “ We find vacant home tours a good way to get houses sold and good people into the neighborhood.’
