14th Annual Parkside Tour of Homes | Arts & Culture
The Parkside Community Association presents the 14th Annual Tour of Homes on Sunday, May 20th from 11:00 am – 4:30 pm. This popular tour will have TEN outstanding homes for you to explore. Visitors are promised a fascinating look inside historical residences in Buffalo’s Historic District of Parkside. Some of the homes reflect their 19th century origin in architectural style with their interiors and furnishings. Others offer an exciting contemporary approach to city living. Onsite docents will provide history of the homes and will be available for questions.
Come see for yourself why Parksiders and out-of-towners alike say this event “is the best tour”.
