About The 2022 Home Tour

 

The homes on tour this year represent exquisite examples of some of the Early 20th Century's most popular architectural styles. Featured will be an impressive American Prairie Style Foursquare, a stately Georgian Revival, a classic brick Craftsman with Beaux Arts details, a charming Tudor Revival, and a pair of "sister houses" designed in the Arts & Crafts Progressive Mode but each with its own distinct style and character. Also included is an open-air tour of the sprawling garden space at the former home of Bishop Lynch.   

 

Guests can travel between all tour stops on air-conditioned mini-coaches staffed by neighborhood tour guides who’ll share interesting facts 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 coaches and carriages are provided with our compliments, at no charge.

 

When it’s time for a break, relax and refresh in Savage Park with freshly prepared food and beverages served all throughout the weekend by Garden Cafe and an assortment of festive Food Trucks offering a variety of menus, including Ruthie's Rolling Cafe and Kona IceBeverage service will include soft drinks, beer, and wine.

 

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.
