grape-arbor-prizeIt’s a great weekend to celebrate Erie history! The Erie Times-News celebrated 125 years of delivering the news yesterday, and we are celebrating all year. We want to hear your stories of home restoration. Click here for all the details on our Historic Homes contest. The grand prize winner gets a weekend stay in one of the oldest brick buildings in North East — The Grape Arbor Bed & Breakfast.

We have plenty to celebrate in House to Home this week. Countryside has a grand opening of its Phase II section in Summit Township. The Maleno development is a neighborhood of patio homes. It is something to see, and the design center, housed inside a patio home with a walkout basement, gives house hunters a look at all the latest and greatest ideas for building a new home. It is a must see — visit Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. Natalie Washburn gave me a tour, and there is always something new at Countryside.

More great House to Home stories include:
