The Hill House Tour – Sunday June 24, 2018

Hill 2000 Neighborhood Association and the Hill Business Association are sponsoring the first-ever House Tour of The Hill on June 24, 2018. Proceeds from the tour will benefit Hill 2000’s many neighborhood projects, such as the Hill Neighborhood Center. Our intention is to showcase ten to twelve houses on the tour – creative rehabs of shotgun and bungalow housing, as well as bold new construction – all demonstrating what can be done with existing housing stock when an established neighborhood is determined to maintain its sense of community. Additionally, tour options include six historic institutions and businesses on the Hill.

Purchase Tickets in Advance $20.00

Please know ticket quantities are limited. ALL tour attendees need to purchase a ticket. You may also purchase advanced tickets at the Neighborhood Center. If buying a ticket in advance at the Neighborhood Center, please bring cash or check for payment.

Day of Event Tickets $25.00

On-line purchases close on June 23. Tickets may be bought in person only on June 24 for $25.00 at the Neighborhood Center.

The Tour Book and Guide

Go to the Hill Neighborhood Center at 1935 Marconi on the 24th.

  • Pick up a Tour Book that describes locations and admits entry. Please bring your payment receipt if you purchased your ticket prior to the 24th.
  • On June 24, same day tickets may be purchased for $25.00 each at the Hill Neighborhood Center and will receive their Tour book at that time.
  • Tickets are non-refundable.
  • All persons participating in the Tour need to purchase a ticket.

Helpful Information

June 24 is a Sunday, therefore parking on the Hill should be more plentiful than other days. Please pay attention to driveways, and alleyways so as not to block them. Try to place your car close to the curb, and for your car’s sake fold your street side mirror in if possible.

Restrooms will be available at select locations throughout the Tour and will be noted in the Tour Book. Guests will have easy access to bottled water.

Each Tour location will be marked on a map in the Tour Book. In addition each place will have an eye-catching sign on the lawn or doorway.

Note our Home Tour sponsors whose ads are in the Tour Book. They are friends of The Hill. We would appreciate your support of their establishments.

The tour will showcase 12 homes on The Hill, representing various construction styles – shotgun, bungalow and new construction – that have been renovated, updated, improved and new-built to meet the needs of today’s families. In addition, the tour will feature a number of venerable properties which have been renovated and repurposed for new uses. Among these are the former Columbia Theater, completely gutted and redone as a fabulous residence and Arts Foundation, the former Big Club Hall, which now serves as studio space for photographers and videographers, Gaslight, an old building turned cocktail-bar with recording studios and Oliva, another old brick building reborn as an elegant event venue with a delightful attached patio.
