About The 2018 Home Tour

The homes on tour this year represent diverse variety of the Early 20th Century's most popular architectural styles. Featured will be a romantic Spanish Revival, a massive Prairie Foursquare, a French Normandy manor house, a stately Colonial Georgian, an elegant Italianate Revival, a classic American Craftsman, and a charming pair of side-by-side Arts & Crafts Bungalows.

Guests can travel between all tour stops on air-conditioned mini coaches staffed by neighborhood tour guides who’ll share interesting facts, stories and details about The District. Those interested in a more-vintage mode of transportation can amble down the avenue in horse-drawn carriages. Both the mini-coaches and carriages are provided at no charge, with our compliments.

When it’s time for a break, relax and refresh in Savage Park with freshly prepared food and beverages served all throughout the weekend. On the main stage in Savage Park, there will be live entertainment throughout the weekend, performed by area talent. Along the median in front of the park, guests can browse the displays of local artisans who will be showcasing their wares, everything from artwork and custom candles to handmade jewelry, pottery, and handicrafts.
