2017 Historic Home Tour Another One on the Books!
What a weekend! We had, great weather, a large turnout, and a very smooth operation. Over 1250 guests viewed our 6 properties this year, and the feedback has been terrific. We were very fortunate to have such a diverse assortment of homes this year. Representing several Architectural styles for which Old Towne Orange is famous!
