The East Montrose biennial Home Tour and Art Walk will take place on Saturday, April 25, 10am-4pm. Organized by East Montrose Civic Association, the home tour will feature six homes originally built between the late 1890s to the early 1900s. Tour goers can get a glimpse of how the architecture has been transformed over the years, with the results of unique and diverse renovations that are characteristic of this distinctive, eclectic neighborhood.

For a special treat and a further taste of Montrose, local boutique restaurants will be providing savory tastings in select homes on the tour.

On the free Art Studio Walking Tour, local artists will open their studio doors for tour goers to enjoy some local art up close.

With pedestrian-friendly streets, diverse architecture, open space (Peggy Shiffick Park), art studios, restaurants, cafes, and coffee shops, it is an enjoyable place to spend an hour, the afternoon, or the day.

Home Tour tickets are $15 in advance at www.eastmontrose.org, or $20 on the day of the tour, at any tour home.
