6 stately and historic buildings will open the parts usually off limits to the public during the weekend of June 18-19 as part of the Hidden Kalamazoo Tour.

This summer marks the 4th time Hidden Kalamazoo has allowed people from Southwest Michigan to tour some of the buildings downtown. The tour is a fundraiser for the Kalamazoo Historic Preservation Commission.

Purchase tickets at D&W Fresh Markets in Kalamazoo and Portage, Spirit of Kalamazoo, Douglas and Son Paint and Wallpaper, Kalamazoo Treasurer's office at City Hall or the Community Development & Planning office on Stockbridge.

Plus you have a chance to win a pair of tickets in our VIP club - good luck and we hope you can join us in touring and appreciating these hidden gems of Kalamazoo.
