It’s Home Tour Time in Heritage Hill!
Saturday and Sunday, May 18 & 19, 2024
Since 1969, the annual Heritage Hill Weekend Tour of Homes welcomes you to our historic Heritage Hill neighborhood, one of the country’s largest urban historic districts recognized by the National Register of Historic Places. More than 1,300 homes stand within the boundaries of Heritage Hill and date from 1843. Nearly every style of American architecture, from Greek Revival to Prairie, is represented in the district. At the turn of the century, this was the city’s most prestigious residential area. Today the neighborhood is an array of lifestyles and passions. Professionals, artisans, students, homeowners and renters share this great place we call home.
Each year, a different line-up of 6-7 private homes and 1-2 historic buildings are open; each with a unique story. During Tour, guides stationed at each house will share information and highlight special features. An array of architecture, decorating styles and urban gardens await you.
Home Tour is the largest fundraiser of the Heritage Hill Association. It is also the biggest promotional effort of our neighborhood and a showcase for the benefits of historic preservation. Over 100 volunteers contribute to make the weekend a success. All proceeds go right back into programs for the Heritage Hill neighborhood.
Heritage Hill was named by This Old House as one of the “Best Old House Neighborhoods” in the country.
