Historic Woodruff Place welcomes you to the Home and Garden Tour
Stroll the esplanades through the shade trees while stopping to enjoy the amazing homes and gardens of historic Woodruff Place. The neighborhood home tour always includes a diverse sampling of the neighborhood’s architecture. You are certain to find something to love.
Although the primary purpose of the Tour is to raise funds to help maintain the unique features of Woodruff Place, another important benefit is for residents and visitors to learn the history of our neighborhood homes. Many homeowners have had the pleasure of meeting former residents of their homes who have amazing stories to share. Visitors are generous with their compliments and generally make homeowners feel even more delighted to live in Woodruff Place.
The Home Tour would not be possible without the generosity of homeowners who open their homes to the public. It would not happen at all without the hard work and dedication of neighbors and friends who make signs, ensure the neighborhood looks beautiful, host breakfasts, distribute signs, develop promotional materials, organize and participate in the fashion show, sell tickets, share old and new history at Town Hall, play music, provide taxi service to guests, act as docents, coordinate the volunteer appreciation celebration, and many more duties.
Woodruff Place also thanks other urban neighbors and neighborhoods who support our tour by encouraging attendance.
