If you’re looking for an afternoon of history and beautiful real estate, stop your search.
I’ve got just the thing. The 2019 Tour of Homes will feature six historically-significant homes in Grandview Heights and Marble Cliff. The tour, held every three years by the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Historical Society, will kick off on Sunday, October 6.
This year, there will be a VIP Event, including cocktails and brunch at High Bank Distillery and a private showing of the tour of homes an hour before the tour opens to the general public. If you’re purchasing a regular Tour of Homes ticket, you’ll check-in at 1621 W First Avenue in Grandview before heading out on your tour.
The tour features six different homes, including a stately mansion on Roxbury, a cozy bungalow originally designed as a summer cottage, and a traditional, early 20th century home owned by Josiah Livingston.
The total walking distance of the tour is under two miles, but comfortable shoes are still highly recommended. The tour begins at 1 p.m. and concludes at 5 p.m. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
