VIRGINIA-HIGHLAND TOUR OF HOMES
If you’ve ever hoped to catch a glimpse inside Virginia-Highland’s charming bungalows, you’re not alone; Atlantans have been flocking to the neighborhood’s annual Tour of Homes for 23 years.
Presented December 2-4 by the Virginia-Highland Civic Association, this year’s event welcomes the holidays with tours of eight homes, ranging from a 1920s English-style abode to a renovated home that doubles as an art gallery and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places last year.
“We try to reflect a lot of unique and different homes so our attendees can enjoy a variety,” says tour chair Robin Ragland. “We have some homes whose owners have made painstaking efforts over the years to preserve and update, and then we have some that are more modern renovations. There should be something for everyone.”
A lineup of local restaurants will also take up residence in each home to serve food samples to visitors. New participants include Cape Dutch, St. Germain Bakery and The General Muir.
Proceeds from the tour benefit the civic association’s community initiatives.
