Victorian Alliance of San Francisco – Annual House Tour Event
|September 30, 2012||Posted by jamie under Events||
The Alliance is very pleased to announce our 40th Anniversary House Tour will be launched on Sunday, October 21, from 1:00 to 5:00PM. If you’ve never taken one of our house tours, you are in for a real treat.
This year’s event is located in the beautiful part of town known as North of the Panhandle or NoPA, where seven remarkable Victorian homes will be showcased. This cluster of elegant residences was developed soon after the creation of nearby Golden Gate Park and its Panhandle Park.
Docents — many in costume — will be on hand to provide historical background on the house’s architect, contractor, craftsmen and the families who settled NoPA in the 19th Century.
All residences lie within a relatively flat, compact and walkable area, well served by public transportation. Comfortable dress and shoes are recommended; please note that home visits require stair climbing.
A Julia Morgan-designed building will house a gift shop, where complimentary light refreshments reward tour guests. All net proceeds benefit the Preservation Grant Fund of The Victorian Alliance, San Francisco’s oldest all-volunteer, not-for-profit architectural preservation and education organization.
You can find more information and a link to purchase tickets at www.VictorianAlliance.org. Be certain to reserve your tickets before the price increase goes into effect on October 15.
