Historic Grant Park 41st Annual Tour of Homes - May 16 & 17, 2015
Come “Stroll Through Time” in Grant Park this Spring!
Status: Archived  

Back by overwhelming demand our Spring tour of homes theme, “A Stroll Through Time,” takes the unique approach in organizing homes, businesses and historic sites, from the oldest to the newest to tell the amazing stories of one of Atlanta’s original “streetcar suburbs.” And this neighborhood is still evolving over a century and a half! Grant Park is home to antebellum houses, Queen Anne Victorians, bungalows and even post WWII ranches, but also contemporary lofts and thriving businesses. A theme this year will focus on residential changes and additions through time. See how modest residences were expanded in creative ways throughout the decades and how homes, just built in 2014 to historic standards, are packing a lot of living in traditionally small footprints!
The event benefits the Grant Park Neighborhood Association, just as it has for 41 years. 100% of funds go to Grant Park neighborhood projects, supporting our schools and public safety, with a special neighborhood project match to be announced soon…stay tuned!
