Historic Home Tour
The Prescott Downtown Partnership, along with the City of Prescott Historic Preservation Office and a local group of committed volunteers and sponsors is hosting a historic home tour to highlight Prescott’s historic past and rich heritage.
The home tour this year will be held on Saturday May 3rd with the ticket booth, located in the Kelly Law Firm parking lot at 425 E Gurley St., opening at 9:30 am. The tour will begin at 10am and last tickets will be sold at 3pm with houses closing for tours at 4pm. Attendees will receive a map detailing locations of open homes and historical information about each house participating on the tour. The area of this years’ tour covers the 100 and 200 blocks of S Mount Vernon Ave., the 200 block of S Pleasant St. and the 200 block of Union St. All homes will be staged with volunteers positioned to help usher all of the visitors through the homes and ensure the care of each home on the tour.
There will be a fee of $15 charged for the tour, and proceeds from the event will be split between the neighborhood participants to assist with Halloween/holiday expenses and the Prescott Downtown Partnership for their sponsorship and serving as the primary host of the event.
Our hope is that this tour will be the first of subsequent historic home tours in other Prescott neighborhoods interested in showcasing their homes, while, at the same time, raising money for local charities and neighborhood projects.
