2015 Holiday House Tour Walking Tour
Tour convenes in front of the R. R. Smith Center at noon
This month’s Preservation Brown Bag Walk will focus on the lofts and homes featured in our 43rd Annual Holiday House Tour on December 5th and 6th.
The 2015 tour spans three historic districts: Beverley, Newtown, and the Wharf Historic District as the central connector. Historically each building had its purpose as warehouses, retail stores, offices, and residential dwellings. Today their use is similar but reimagined and revitalized for the 21st Century.
The tour highlights the advantages of modern living in fine loft apartments and comfortable single-family homes located in neighboring residential and commercial historic districts. All tour homes are in close proximity to Staunton’s shopping, dining, and events. Within a five-minute walk (depending on how often you stop to talk with neighbors), one can visit the farmers market, coffee shops, City Hall, as well as numerous restaurants and retail shops. The homes on the tour represent a new era of revitalized Staunton.
This is Staunton reimagined as a sustainable, vibrant urban experience.
Open and free to the public!
