A self-guided tour from 10am to 4pm on Saturday showcases residential homes (some with personal gardens), and featured gardens. This event provides a rare opportunity to view some of Apalachicola’s loveliest residences and grounds. Other historic homes, not on this year’s tour, are scattered throughout the community and provide a scenic backdrop for visitors.
Greeters are stationed at each location to provide detailed information for the tour, and homeowners may be on hand to speak with attendees, as well.
The tour weekend begins on Friday evening with a choral Evensong Service at Trinity Episcopal Church.
Immediately following the service a reception will be held at Gorrie Square, just outside the church with refreshments, and information on the following day’s events. All proceeds from the event are used to maintain and preserve this historic church and its properties.
