The 23rd Annual Montford Holiday Tour of Homes is back and will be held on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 1 - 5 p.m. 

Montford — Asheville’s most historic neighborhood — will showcase 10 homes at its 23rd Annual Holiday Tour of Homes.

This is your chance to explore lovingly restored and carefully crafted new homes constructed to the standards of the Historic Resources Commission of Asheville and Buncombe County.

The Montford Historic is Asheville’s oldest and largest with over 600 buildings reflecting a variety of late 19th and early 20th century styles, and includes a variety of architectural influences reflecting the cosmopolitan character of Asheville during the turn of the 20th century.

The “Montford Holiday Tour of Homes” Keepsake Booklet will serve as your map and ticket, providing directions to the self-guided tour of homes, photographs and information about the individual properties, historic information about the neighborhood, and colorful ads of our tour sponsors and advertisers.

Profits from the Tour of Homes support improvements and activities in Montford such as:

  • Youth programs at the Montford Recreation Center
  • New bus shelters on Montford Ave.
  • Support for the spring Montford Music and Arts Festival
  • Security for children to enjoy Halloween in Montford
  • Beautification projects in the Montford neighborhood
