Home Tour 2020
Home Tour Reimagined...
Given the current state of Covid19, most members, homeowners, volunteers, and visitors aren't ready to return to live events, so our Board of Directors voted to hold our first ever...
Virtual Historic Home Tour!
Is it a big change from our traditional live home tour? You bet! Will we miss seeing you in person at these lovely historic properties? No doubt! But that won't keep us from being super excited about the endless possibilities of hosting a virtual tour! And boy, oh boy...do we have some amazing homes lined up!
Our Fearless Leader...
We are excited to announce that Rachel Hancock is our virtual Home Tour Chair! You may recognize Rachel's name from the “Art with Heart” campaign she conducted to support local businesses and nonprofits (like PG!). We’re so excited to have Rachel share her expertise with us in crafting a wonderful virtual Home Tour.
How will the virtual tour work?
The Home Tour itself will be free to access and you will not have to watch it when it “premieres”. You will be able to access it in the future, free of charge. Donations, of course, will be graciously accepted.
Will there be a Cocktail or VIP event?
So glad you asked! Yes! We've collaborated with a local restaurant and arranged a special conversation with a local architect to offer a VIP experience, all of which can be enjoyed easily and safely from the comfort of your home. Ticketing information to come!
Why not just wait until next year?
The importance of preservation continues despite current challenges imposed by Covid19.
Did you know, the Home Tour is our biggest fundraiser of the year? Proceeds benefit our organization as well as the Preservation Fund Grant Program through which we offer grants to community members who are restoring structures in the historic district. Applications for this program are currently underway. Therefore, it's super important for us to work together toward another successful event. And your help is needed for that...
What can I do to help?
Support our sponsors the best way you can. If you have a need for their services, please consider our sponsors first, spread the word about them to friends, neighbors, and share on social media, etc...Or simply thank them for continuing to sponsor despite the changes to the tour. Every single one of our Home Tour sponsors have proven to be true partners in preservation.
And finally, when the time comes, we'll ask you to join us on the tour...from the comfort of your home! Break out the popcorn!
With great appreciation for your continued support and admiration for valuing preservation in our community, we thank you.
Together, we will keep Georgetown historic!
