Swiss Avenue Historic District Mother's Day Home Tour
May 11, 2019 - May 12, 2019
Our 46th annual Mother’s Day Home Tour will feature five of the city's most fabulous Early 20th Century homes and, on Saturday only, an historic Gothic sanctuary built by noted architect, C.D. Hill. The homes on tour this year represent a diverse variety of the Early 20th Century's most popular architectural styles, including a romantic Spanish Revival; an Italianate Mediterranean Villa; a pristine Mission Revival; a Prairie Foursquare with unique Georgian influences; and a Progressive Style Prairie Foursquare.
In addition to touring homes, guests may enjoy an open-air art fair, a vintage auto display, a children’s activity area with a kid-sized railroad, live entertainment on the Avenue, a speakers’ series, free horse-drawn carriage rides, complimentary air-conditioned mini-coaches, freshly prepared food, ice-cold beverages, and much more. On Sunday, Mother's Day brunch will be served in Savage Park with a live jazz ensemble. Advance reservations are suggested.
