Beautiful and unique

In the 1920s, B.C. Bowen Co. (a percursor to the present day Welles Bowen Realty Company) transformed an apple and pear orchard into Toledo’s Old Orchard neighborhood. Today, over 1,200 households comprise Old Orchard, an area of less than a square mile, roughly bordered by Bancroft St, Secor Rd, Central Ave and Douglas Rd.

Full of brick, English Tudor style homes, English street names and gorgeous gardens, Old Orchard is an active, historic and tight knit community. See the neighborhood’s beauty during the Old Orchard Garden Tour, a self-guided walking tour of 11 beautiful gardens in the neighborhood, showcasing the area’s architectural and botanical beauty.
