This year’s Windsor Historic Home and Garden Tour will feature about a dozen homes and gardens along with a cheery street fair featuring food, clothing, art and other vendors… plus music.
Historic Home tours are just plain fun. No only do you get to see some fantastic homes from the 1920’s-1940’s, you get to explore a bit of Phoenix’s history. As a tour buff, I am love to watch people’s faces as many have no idea Phoenix has historic districts and homes. The truth is we have 35 designated historic districts throughout the Phoenix area with thousands of homes from the early to mid 1900’s. If you would like to read about the various historic districts, we have a section of our site dedicated to these special neighborhoods and homes. Just Click Here to find out more.
