About the event

One of Preservation Utah's largest annual fundraising events, the Historic Homes Tour offers a journey into the past, showcasing the rich history and architectural diversity of the neighborhood. For over 50 years, the Historic Homes Tour has allowed the public to see how historic buildings can be brought into the comfort of the 21st century while maintaining the historic character and charm only historic buildings can provide. With the permission and generosity of the building owners, the tour opens privately owned buildings to the public. Preservation Utah volunteers guide the public through the homes, offering historical and educational information about various aspects of the buildings.

Whether you're a history enthusiast, an architecture buff, or simply curious about the stories behind these iconic homes, the Historic Homes Tour promises an enriching experience that celebrates the heritage and cultural significance of the neighborhood.
