Tickets are now available* for the Tour of Historic Homes, this year spotlighting the Sunset Hills neighborhood. The Tour will take place from 11am – 5pm on Saturday May 19, and from 1pm – 5pm on Sunday May 20.
Tour-goers will explore seven classic homes of the Roaring Twenties, including a rambling Tudor, a smart Colonial Revival cottage, a Carolina farmhouse, a Minimal Traditional cottage, a Craftsman bungalow, and two incomparable stone homes! The tour, this year sponsored by the Piedmont Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, is centered on the Greenway Park, a shaded streamside park that is the pride of the neighborhood. Participants will be able to park and leave their car behind on this walkable tour, and enjoy the springtime flowers and even visit “the Corner” for a Sunset Hills-flavored brunch, lunch, or dinner. Sunset Hills is one of North Carolina’s classic neighborhoods, and it is yours to explore on the Tour weekend in May!
