Downtown tour

Thursday, May 16, 2013

There's a fun opportunity this weekend to visit several historic homes in the downtown area.

Old Town Cape will host its annual Downtown Historic Home and Garden Tour from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday. Seven homes will be featured, with the homeowners giving tours.

The homes are: The Oliver-Leming House, 740 North St.; The Broadway Loft, 609 Broadway; The Schott Home, 107 N. Frederick St.; The Becking Home, 25 N. Fountain St.; Vasterling Suites, 115 N. Fountain St.; The Hutson Condo, 245 Aquamsi St.; and The Huhn-Harrison Home/West Bank Bistro, 340 S. Lorimier St.

Advance tickets may be purchased for $15 at Old Town Cape, Annie Laurie's Antiques, Spanish Street Mercantile and Realty Executives. Same-day tickets are $20 and will be available at the Oliver-Leming House.

We appreciate the work the owners put into maintaining these downtown homes. Each has its own charm and contributes to the area's uniqueness.

The tour also is an opportunity to highlight the living options in the downtown area.

We hope you will consider attending the tour.
