The Tour of Historic Homes & Gardens is one of our favorite fundraising events every year, and we won’t dare cancel it due to COVID-19! So, we are going virtual! The tour will go live on our website TWO WEEKS, from May 15th through May 31st. Tour videos include detailed 7-minute presentations of the home interiors, as well as additional content on the history and architecture of the homes and neighborhood.
This tour will present six fascinating historic homes in the South Elm Street and Southside neighborhoods. The houses highlighted in the tour include the Miracle on Spring Garden Street (1907), Our College Hill Classic (1906), and several other cool homes. These houses illustrate a diversity of preservation-related presentations, ranging from a house with ambitious new owners to a completely restored residence. Historians consider College Hill to be among the oldest in the Gate City, and it maintains a mix of institutions, storefronts, bungalows, and big Victorians that chronical Greensboro’s history.
A special thanks to our tour sponsors who have continued their support for our organization as we re-think our 2021 Tour of Historic Homes & Gardens!
