“A must-see every year! This tour provides me the opportunity to experience the historic charm and beauty of Savannah’s finest homes.”

Tour of Homes
Saturday, October 15, 2016

St. Vincent’s Academy will once again host this popular self-guided tour of the original 1845 Convent building and several private homes in Savannah’s Historic District.

This year’s Fall Tour of Homes promises to be a fascinating look inside six residences in Savannah’s Historic District and the original 1845 Convent building. Some of the homes reflect their origins in architectural style, interiors and furnishings, while others offer an exciting, eclectic approach to downtown living.

Certainly, the centerpiece of the tour is the elegant Tea, which is served on the grounds of the Convent. St. Vincent’s Academy students will serve a delicate repast of tea, homemade confections, and traditional tea sandwiches.

This event is held annually to benefit the preservation of the historic 1845 convent building. Come see for yourself why native Savannahians and out-of-towners alike say this annual fall event is “the best tour in Savannah.”
