Scottholm is one of Syracuse's most beautiful neighborhoods. Laid out as a garden suburb and built between 1915 and about 1930 (with some later post-WWII additions including the landmark modern Skoler house) the landscaped streets lined with attractive 1920s houses - including Arts & Crafts, Tudor Revival and mission Style houses - are especially pretty this time of year. Join me on this free tour!

If you have information about houses in the area - let me know. Many of these houses have only through a few owners and descendants of the first owners have not moved far.
