On a street once called "Mann," there are two side-by-side lovely red-and-yellow brick bungalows. HRPS members Bryan and Barrie Lynn own the properties and occupy one of them. Well-loved local musician Tony Pecetti had the homes built, as well as a third on the corner (not on the tour), which he maintained as rental properties until his death in 1969. Tony was a larger-than-life figure in 1920s and 30s Reno, and owner of the popular El Patio Ballroom. The Lynns are only the third owners of these 93-year-old properties. Renovations have been done to correct prior bad remodels and in a style appropriate for the homes' time period. Tony Pecetti was into making home movies; the Lynns have converted the film to DVD. Each home will be playing a DVD of Reno of the 1920s and 1930s for you to view. Today when you enter the homes, it's as if you’ve left 2018 behind and time-traveled back to 1925. And you will enjoy every minute.
