Come explore Asheville's histpric neighborhood decorated with holiday cheer on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 1-5 p.m.

The tour will display 10 lovingly restored historic homes and carefully crafted new houses in historic style in Montford — Asheville’s most historic neighborhood.

Located immediately north of downtown, it was developed at the turn of the century for families who could afford its larger lots and tree-lined expanses.

The Montford Historic District is Asheville’s oldest and largest, with over 600 buildings reflecting a variety of late 19th and early 20th century styles, and includes a variety of architectural influences reflecting the cosmopolitan character of Asheville during the turn of the 20th century.

The Tour of Homes is an activity of the Montford Neighborhood Association, and is its primary fundraiser. Profits of the Tour support neighborhood improvements and activities, including youth programs at the Tempie Avery Montford Center, neighborhood beautification, and our newest project, matching Incentive Grants to neighbors for tree planting in Montford.

This is a rain or shine event. No refunds will be available.

Tickets cost $25. Reserve them online at www.montfordtour.com or purchase them in person at Asheville Shop in the Asheville Visitors Center, 36 Montford Avenue, Asheville.
