Virginia-Highland History Tour
Remember we’ve added a docent-led historical tour of the neighborhood to this year’s Tour. The authors of Images of America: Virginia-Highland have planned this special tour. Virginia-Highland is on the National Register of Historic Places and filled with great architecture and stories. Don’t miss this special opportunity to learn about its development and those who made it such a treasure. Advance ticket purchase required for the history tour.
Oh – and look who’s flocking to the neighborhood for the Tour of Homes! You may see some of these flocks in various gardens around the neighborhood! Hopefully, you’ll enjoy our bit of whimsy as we remind everyone tour time is approaching.
