The Tour Homes
904 Ash Street: The Carpenter-Hyer House
This charming 1884 house was built in the Folk Victorian style for railroad agent Livingston Carpenter and his wife Mary and is now the home of Michael and Kelley Worden.
1103 S. Elm Street: The Irvine-Stewart House
Built in 1898 by lumberman George Irvine for his newlywed daughter Eva and her husband Wiley Sillure, this home started as a Folk Victorian facing 11th Street and now is the lovely Craftsman bungalow that owners Cid Ransom and John Lawton call home.
1008 E. University Avenue: The Hyer-Sells House
Beginning its life in 1904 as a sprawling, single-story house for Dr. Robert S. Hyer, Regent of Southwestern University, this now stately two story serves as the San Gabriel House Bed and Breakfast, is owned by Jeannie Snead, and is managed by Danni Babik.
Why virtual? Why not just wait until next year?
The importance of preservation continues despite current challenges imposed by Covid19. 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 being considered. Therefore, it's super important for us to work together toward another successful event. And your help is needed for that...
