The tour begins at the corner of Mississippi and Lafayette Avenues. You will pick up your ticket/tour book here.
Amenities include complimentary Carriage Rides, an Antique Fair surrounding Lafayette Park, the Shepard Barclay Vintage Baseball Festival and a Saturday evening Concert. Neighborhood shops, art galleries and restaurants will be open, with many offering treats and discounts.
The tour is conducted as a self-guided, open house format: attendees are welcome to visit homes in any order at any time during tour hours. If you’d like to see all of the tour homes, please allow at least three hours. All homes have several stairs leading to the entrance; we regret that we are not wheelchair accessible. A free trolley will be running in a loop around the neighborhood to save you a few extra steps between homes.
