Janice With Cohost Rick

I have owned this house for 25 years. I saved it from the wrecking ball and moved it down the road to create the Glenwood/Wilbur Historic District next to downtown Mesa. It was the 17th house ever built in Mesa and was a barn raising effort and built by neighbors and friends with no power tools, no electricity and no measuring tape in 1902. It's a half hour tour that details the many Mormon families who owned this house, lived and died here and it was even a stained glass shop for 25 years. Take the tour to learn amazing stories and histories of the individuals who lived here.

Where you'll be

This will take place in one house, the NEW! Historic Gennevois Inn, touring the outside and interior and the street view.
