Take a walking tour of Laurelhurst, created by resident Amelia Shields and narrated by Katy Pozarycki. Two tours are available. Amelia has included a detailed print version so you can read along with the tours and learn even more about Laurelhurst.
Tour 1 covers the history of the neighborhood, and homes/ landmarks in the two North quadrants, Coe Circle, and the SW quadrant. It takes approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours to complete the loop. This tour starts and ends at Laurelhurst Elementary School.
Tour 2 covers Laurelhurst Park in one of the South quadrants and a few surrounding homes/places of interest. This tour starts and ends at the Laurelhurst Club and takes a little over an hour to complete.
Amelia Shields researched and produced this walking tour while attending high school as part of her Girl Scout Gold Award. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest level award a Girl Scout can earn. It requires a minimum of 80 leadership hours toward the completion of a project to better the community. The Gold Award allows a girl scout to develop leadership skills, be seen as a role model, master time management skills, and make the world a better place.
