Hosted by the Monrovia Historic Preservation Group, the 37th Historic Homes Tour offers the public a chance to experience a number of Monrovia’s architectural treasures. Featured on the tour will be six of Monrovia’s “First Houses;” meaning homes built before the end of 1887. The Monrovia Historical Museum and the Anderson House Museum will also be open for viewing. The event, which will take place on Sunday, May 5th from 10am to 4pm, invites visitors to step back in time to a bygone era where “horseless carriages” cruised the streets of the foothill community. Tour guides stationed at each of the homes will offer stories and anecdotes relating to the architectural gems.

Advance tickets are on sale now and can be purchased from the Online Store. Tickets will also be sold at the Monrovia Chamber of Commerce (620 S. Myrtle Ave), Dollmakers’ Kattywompus (412 S. Myrtle Ave) or Foothill Gym (202 S. Myrtle Ave).

The Historic Homes Tour is not to be missed as it is the Monrovia Historic Preservation Group’s primary fundraiser of the year. The Monrovia Historic Preservation Group is dedicated to preserving Monrovia’s rich architectural heritage. Every year, over 200 volunteers work to make the tour a success. This year visitors can enjoy sweet treats provided by Rivanis Baking Company as well as popcorn from none other than Deasy Penner Podley!
