The 40th annual Galveston Historic Homes Tour opens the doors to numerous, privately owned, historic island homes May 3-4 and May 10-11, 2014. This year's tour, which features nine homes, six of which have never been on tour, also hosts numerous special events and spotlights new island construction with specially selected additional homes both weekends.
"The 2014 Historic Homes Tour is one of our strongest set of houses and properties in a number of years," says Dwayne Jones, Galveston Historical Foundation's Executive Director. "The range of dates and architectural styles provide an excellent overview of Galveston's architectural history. It's a "not to be missed" architectural tour."
The first weekend will feature new construction with a reference to the historic architecture of Galveston Island. Ticket holders will have the opportunity to visit select new homes in the award winning Beachtown development where nationally recognized architects are inspired by Galveston's rich architectural heritage.
The second weekend will offer additional new houses reflecting green or environmental design.
Tickets are $20 for non-members before May 2 and are available for purchase online, by calling, 409-762-2475 and at all area Randalls Food Stores beginning April 9. Tickets are $25 for non-members after May 2.
