June 8 Wine Walk Features Restored Homes in Starr Historic District

Movable wine-tasting event offers look at four places in one of Richmond’s most historic neighborhoods.

A moveable wine tasting offers a peek inside three Victorian homes on historic North 10th Street and the Pennsylvania Railroad Depot in Richmond, Indiana, on Saturday, June 8.

Built between 1860 and 1885, the featured homes include the William G. Scott House, Seybold House and Starr-Kolp “High Tower” House. Indiana Landmarks restored the Seybold House with support from the City of Richmond and Wayne Bank and Trust and soon will offer it for sale. Richmond’s Daniel Burnham-designed Pennsylvania Railroad Depot, built in 1902, serves as the fourth stop.

The event takes place in the Starr Historic District, named for Charles and Elizabeth Starr, who developed the early Victorian neighborhood after moving to Richmond in 1825. The Starr family later owned Starr Piano, which was a world-leading manufacturer of pianos, phonographs and records.

The wine walk is sponsored by Richmond Columbian Properties, a nonprofit that promotes education and advocacy for neighborhood and community reinvestment. Wine and snacks at each stop are included in the event cost.
