Annual Savannah Tour of Homes & Gardens
This annual March fundraiser for the Historic Savannah Foundation offers walking tours of six to eight historic homes and gardens in the Historic District. Various luncheons and lectures compliment the main event. The Foundation, founded in 1955, has since saved over 300 historic buildings. Proceeds fund continued preservation and outreach efforts. Reservations for a tour are highly recommended as the event sells out every year. Call or visit the web site for schedule and additional details.
I have attended the tour twice and volunteered once. The homes are always a delight and the people behind the event put a lot of heart into this and it shows. Not only do you see 100 year old homes, but you get the history that goes with them. Other events that coincide with the tour include a group luncheon event at Paula Deen's restaurant and Mrs. Wilke's Boarding House. This is a must see when visiting Savannah!
For 4 days you can tour private homes and gardens! In addition, they have reserved luncheons at Paula Deen's restaurant and Mrs. Wilkes' Boarding House. The Georgian Silver Seminar is wonderful as well as the other Seminars and Special Events. All this at the height of the Spring flowers blooming. All proceeds go to charities and historic preservation. You can walk your feet off, but what a great time!
