Hillsboro-West End home tour tomorrow (Oct. 18)

From the Hillsboro-West End Neighborhood Association:
The Hillsboro West End Neighborhood Association will host a home tour tomorrow (Saturday, Oct. 18) from 10:30 am to 3:30 p.m.

Ticket buyers are invited to sample favorite dishes from Hillsboro Village restaurants at the Ticket Tent at the Harris Hillman School (Blakemore and 26th Avenue South). Park there and hop on the trolley to visit the nine homes on nearby streets plus the recently renovated Nashville Fire Station #16 built in 1930. Or you can visit the homes at your own pace.

Intriguing interiors behind authentically historic and compatible-with-historic facades mark this truly livable neighborhood. A touch of nostalgia for the tour is the antique cars parked in front of most of the homes. Spanning the years from the 1940’s to 1980’s, the cars include a 1949 Nash Super Ambassador, 1948 Chrysler Windsor, 1947 Packard Clipper Super, 1982 Delorean, and a vintage London Taxicab.

Tickets are $10 at Harris Hillman on the day of the tour. Pre-tour tickets are available at Hillsboro Hardware and Pangaea.

The Hillsboro West End Neighborhood association, which hosts the tour, invests the proceeds back into the neighborhood. Recent projects include the annual Dragon Parade, Cleanup Day, Dragon Music Sunday concert series during the summer, annual tree planting in our public areas, and other small and large projects that promote understanding among property owners, government, and business interests.
