Event description

Description

The Legacy Home Tour is Alameda’s most exciting architectural event of the year. Every year, on the fourth Sunday in September, a selection of curated homes open their doors to tour visitors, who encounter history, inspiring restorations and modern living in these architectural beauties. The Alameda Legacy Home Tour will take place on Sunday, September 22, 2019, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

This year’s event, sponsored by Alameda Municipal Power, is particularly exciting with the inclusion of Alameda’s own General Electric Demonstration house located in Alameda’s Fernside District. Built in 1936, it is one of the unique homes GE built across America to show homeowners how electric appliances would modernize their lives. “With our 132-year legacy of providing Alameda homes with low-cost, reliable electricity, Alameda Municipal Power is proud to help illuminate the city’s residential historical treasures by sponsoring the 2019 Legacy Home Tour,” said Nico Procos, Alameda Municipal Power's general manager.

Event goers enjoy the selection of homes, the detailed descriptions in the brochure, the friendly docents, and the opportunity to see each house’s interiors in detail. They’ll have an opportunity to talk to some of the owners, find resources and meet with restoration vendors.

The ticket price includes an illustrated guidebook with a historical information and a map, and punch and cookies in the garden of one of the homes on tour. Once you have your admission ticket, begin your tour at any home, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on tour day.

The tour is a fundraising event for the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society (AAPS) and the Alameda Museum , non-profit organizations.

Eventbrite fees are added on to the ticket price for online orders.

Important! You will receive a confirmation of your order almost immediately via email. If for some reason, you don't receive it, please contact us at (510) 423-3338 and we will try to find the reason.
