CANCELLED
2017 Walk Along the River

With great regret, the House Tour Committee has decided to cancel the tour this year. Hurricane Irma did sufficient damage to a few participating houses and some owners were not confident that their homes would be fully recovered to the extent needed to support a tour date of December 2nd. It appears that hurricanes have been coming all too frequently. The Museum would like to thank the homeowners, house leaders, organizers, sponsors and docents for their work involved in preparing for this event. An additional "thanks" must be extended to those businesses that also intended to help with the tour, either monetarily or physically. Who knows ~ we are already thinking that maybe Next Year?????
