We will meet at 1pm in the beautiful Gothic-designed Klise Memorial Chapel at East Congregational Church at 1005 Giddings SE. The presentation will be followed by a 90-minute guided walking tour of the Ottawa Hills and adjacent East Grand Rapids streets where several 1920s era homes are attributed to women architects.
