This year’s tour features beautifully restored historic homes as well as newly constructed homes that are further proof of Cottage Home’s revitalization. Tour goers are invited to view a variety of new and old homes, selected to showcase the creativity and diverse decorating styles of our residents, as well as explore backyard gardens, our community garden and playground. Throughout the day visitors can sample fabulous homemade refreshments and enjoy artists and artisans in the Cottage Home Park.

The tour not only draws attention to the revitalization taking place in Cottage Home, but is also the urban neighborhood’s major fundraiser for the year. In the past two years, the neighborhood saw a whirlwind of activity as several new homes were built in the northwest corner of the neighborhood and many homes have taken on renovations.
