Our 2019 Tour in Lindley Park
Saturday May 18, 11am – 5pm, and Sunday May 19th, 1pm – 5pm
May is National Preservation Month, and what better way to celebrate historic preservation in our community than with Preservation Greensboro’s Ninth Annual Tour of Historic Homes & Gardens! The tour is scheduled for May 18th and 19th and will feature vintage homes in the Lindley Park neighborhood.
Lindley Park stands among Greensboro’s classic park-centered neighborhoods,” says Benjamin Briggs, Executive Director of Preservation Greensboro. “Its winding streets, sidewalks, and shade trees are the inspiration of landscape architect Earle Sumner Draper. However, few people know that Lindley Park served as an amusement park for citizens over 100 years ago…with Vaudeville acts, outdoor theatre, and a lake. Evidence of that park is long gone, but the legacy of Van Lindley, the neighborhood’s namesake, remains in the public parks and private gardens of Lindley Park.”
Vintage homes in the Lindley Park neighborhood will open their doors to ticket holders. The tour highlights charming examples of early and mid-twentieth century architecture.
The tour is the flagship fundraiser for Preservation Greensboro. Information and helpful tips are below.
