Old North Community & House Tour
Sat, May 13, 2017, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM CDT
MARK YOUR CALENDAR NOW... The 2017 Annual Old North House & Community Tour and Spring Fling Vintage & Handmade Festival will be Sat., May 13!
Every year in May, Old North St. Louis Restoration Group hosts a neighborhood-wide house & community tour to show off the warmth of the community, the richness and character of the architecture, the beauty of the community gardens and greenspaces, and the dynamic revitalization in progress. This year the big day is scheduled for Saturday, May 13, 2017 from 10:00AM- 4:00PM and will include homes and museums along historic St. Louis Ave. In addition, the annual Spring Fling Vintage & Handmade festival will be held in Crown Square with more than 50 vendors, food trucks, and live entertainment.
With the aid of a tour booklet, this go-at-your-own-pace, self-guided tour provides visitors, friends of the community, and residents of Old North to get up-close views of the award-winning revitalization in progress. More than a dozen stops on the tour will feature beautifully-restored, historic homes; a recently built home with universal design components; houses in the midst of rehab; apartments in buildings that once had been severely dilapidated, crumbling, and abandoned; neighborhood gardens; and much more.
All proceeds will benefit the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group & St. Louis Place Neighbors as they work to continue revitalization of the community.
