The best way for you to help right now is to provide us with suggestions for residences (historical, remodeled, or new). Don't overlook gardens, artist studios, or any of the other wide variety of venues (interesting or new businesses) that exist in our diverse neighborhood. For any potential homeowners who would like more information about the experience, we have many past participants who will gladly share their own experience of being on the tour. In addition, you can check out below info on former tours. So, please, if you have places you'd like us to consider (yours or others) and/or would like to join our committee, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
2015 Sam Hughes Neighborhood Home Tour
The Sam Hughes Home and Neighborhood Tour Committee is happy to report that the 2015 tour was held Sunday, April 12. The self-guided tour included residences, gardens, a museum/gallery, a historic church, unique businesses, and activities in Himmel Park. Several venues offered complimentary refreshments.
Tickets were again just $20 with a discount for Sam Hughes Association members. Pre-tour ticket purchase was available at Arte de la Vida at 37 N. Tucson Blvd. Plentiful tickets were available the day of the tour in front of Rincon Market, 2513 E. 6th St.
Proceeds went to support the many varied activities and projects in the neighborhood. This year a large portion of the proceeds went toward enhancing amenities at Himmel Park.
This long-standing tour, conducted every other spring, has proved to be immensely popular and draws from locations quite a distance away, including other states. We hope you enjoy touring the kind of neighborhood we think there is a longing for today. For more information, call 323-7891 or 795-6095.
