The Tour of Historic Homes & Gardens is one of our favorite fundraising events each year, and we won’t dare cancel it due to COVID-19! So, like last year…we are going virtual! The tour will go live on our website for a two-week window, 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 the surrounding neighborhood.
This tour will present six fascinating historic homes in the charming College Hill neighborhood. The houses highlighted in the tour include a variety of architectural styles and scales, from centuries-old “Grand Dames” to eclectic brick loft spaces. Historians consider College Hill to be among the oldest neighborhoods in the Gate City, and its mix of institutions, narrow streets, bungalows, and big Victorians make it among the most treasured nineteenth century neighborhoods in North Carolina.
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!
