Annual Tour of Historic Homes & Gardens — Southside and South Elm Street

posted on January 8, 2020 by Paislee

The Tour of Historic Homes & Gardens is going virtual from now until December 1st.  Tickets may be purchased for $15 and are required to gain access to password-protected tour videos and content. Tour videos include detailed 7-minute presentations of the home interiors, as well as additional content on the history and architecture of the homes and neighborhood.

This tour will present six fascinating historic homes in the South Elm Street and Southside neighborhoods. The six houses highlighted in the tour include the Magnolia House: A Greensboro Landmark (1889), Our Classic South-Elm-Meets-Tribeca Loft (1906), the Cozy Queen Anne Cottage (1902), the Original Gate City Live and Work Home (1924), The Amazing Southside Makeover (1889), and an Eclectic Over-Store-Studio (1895). These houses illustrate a diversity of preservation presentations, ranging from a house currently under restoration to completely restored landmarks. These neighborhoods are among the oldest in the Gate City, and they maintain a mix of brick storefronts and wood-frame houses that reach back to the days when the city’s name was spelled Greensborough!

Tickets purchases will provide a password to access our tour content on our website beginning on October 16th. It will remain available until December 1st.

A special thanks to our tour sponsors who have continued their support for our organization as we re-think our 2020 Tour of Historic Homes & Gardens!
