Laurel Court offers tours next two Sundays

The public is invited to tour the historic Laurel Court mansion in College Hill on March 1 or March 8 from 2 PM to 3 PM.

Visitors will get a rare chance to see the main rooms of the Beaux-Arts mansion at 5870 Belmont Avenue and learn interesting facts about the historic home.

The house, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was completed in 1907 for Champion Coated Paper founder Peter G. Thomson.

Admission is $12 for adults, $6 for children ages 6-17.

Tickets are available at the door, but online reservations are encouraged.

Tours last about one hour.
