Preservation Durham is pleased to announce the return of its Annual Historic Home Tour, with a theme fitting for a comeback: Tudor Revival. This is your digital preview, which we'll expand in the days leading up to the event, but don't forget to buy tickets ($25 advance via Eventbrite compared to $30 day of) and collect your full booklet from the tour headquarters - the Pinecrest Carriage House at 1044 West Forest Hills Blvd - when you start your excursion!
Out of respect for your hosts and our incredible volunteers, please take note of the COVID-19 precautions outlined on the ticketing page - proof of vaccination and masks are required of all attendees.
Another great way to get an introduction prior to the October 16-17 tour is to tune in for the free virtual lecture by the outstanding Durham designer and preservationist, Sara Lachenmen - Thursday, October 14th, 12-1pm.
Mapped above and linked below are the six fantastic properties featured this year. As we'll continue to add here and your print booklet will reveal in greater detail, we've learned so much more about each home - from their unique architectural fluorishes to the rich history of their past residents - in the process of putting together this event.
1050 W. Forest Hills Blvd. - Pinecrest
2116 West Club Blvd. - Biggs House

Of course we couldn't get every example of this popular style in Durham on a two-day tour, but you can check out dozens of other pages for buildings with Tudor Revival features here in our expansive community archive.
