Swiss Avenue Historic District presents Mother's Day Home Tour
The 46th annual Mother's Day Home Tour will feature five of the city's most fabulous early 20th Century homes and, on Saturday only, a historic Gothic sanctuary built by noted architect, C.D. Hill.
In addition to touring homes, guests may enjoy an open-air art fair, a vintage auto display, a children’s activity area with a kid-sized railroad, live entertainment on the Avenue, a speakers’ series, free horse-drawn carriage rides, complimentary air-conditioned mini-coaches, freshly prepared food, ice-cold beverages, and more.
Swiss Avenue stands as the finest example of an early 20th Century neighborhood in the entire Southwest. Its eclectic mix of homes represent virtually every popular residential design style of the day, including Mediterranean, Spanish, Spanish Revival, Georgian, Mission, Prairie, Craftsman, Neoclassical, Italian Renaissance, Tudor and Colonial Revival. The Home Tour is your opportunity to step inside these treasured homes to discover the charm and detail that has been lovingly preserved throughout the years.
