Historic Vistula Foundation was founded in 2001 to address the issues of neglect and building preservation while fighting against needless demolitions, slumlords, and the culture of poverty in Toledo's oldest neighborhood. We currently own the property located at 1201 N Huron St and are working to renovate the building into the first full service grocery store in Vistula in many years.
While we are renovating 1201 N Huron St,, in front of the building we will operate a produce stand on Saturday afternoons offering fresh fruits and vegetables at very low wholesale prices. We will also be accepting SNAP and EBT. This way, we hope we can bring affordable produce to the neighborhood.
We also have several fundraising events every year including a Victorian Christmas Tea, a 14 Course Victorian Dinner in April, and a Summer Tea in late June. We also sponsor two concerts each year, a Porch Concert at the Matthew Brown House in August and a Winter Solstice Concert at Salem Lutheran Church.This year, we are happy to be participating with other community leaders in a music festival for the North End taking place July 30th.We hope this festival will become an annual event.
Historic Vistula Foundation's Summer Solstice Tea
Guests attending The Historic Vistula Foundation's Summer Solstice Garden Tea can take a step into the past at this elegant Victorian event. Seated in the fragrant garden sipping teas, thay will enjoy mouth-watering delights served on linens, using antique china and silver as if on a bygone summers' day. Of course tea should be followed by a stroll through the lovely garden, enhanced with fanciful garden art pieces which can be purchased or simply enjoyed.
