About the Georgetown House Tour:
For over 85 years, St. John’s Episcopal Church has organized and hosted the Georgetown House Tour to raise funds for ministry and outreach.

The Georgetown House Tour is believed to be the oldest such house tour in the nation. The first Georgetown House Tour in 1931 was planned by the  parish to raise funds as the Great Depression began to grip the area. It also coincided with a period of local history, when many of the residences, which had grown shabby over the decades, were being renovated and refurbished to their antebellum elegance.

Tickets were $1 and the first house tour raised $350. By the mid-1930s, it had grown to a huge undertaking for the parish, requiring efforts from nearly all members. It remains an enormous task. Today, more than 300 dedicated volunteers from the community, including organizations like the Junior League, come together each year to make this event a success.
