More than 90 people showed up on a beautiful Sunday afternoon for our modern/Victorian get-together with the Lawrence Preservation Alliance. We toured architect Scott Trettle’s 2009 modern creation at 618 Walnut St. and walked across the street to view a Queen Anne-style Victorian home built in the 1870s owned by David Baird. As LPA board member Virgil Dean noted, the contrast in styles was truly remarkable and illustrative of the range of housing stock we have in Lawrence and Douglas Country.
