As the leaves begin to change and the weather cools, the Historic Salisbury Foundation displays Salisbury’s unique charm and architectural history in the annual OctoberTour of Historic Homes. Invite friends and family to catch up during a relaxing weekend while enjoying exclusive visits through 10 private, historic homes dating from 1820 to 1937. Experience Salisbury’s rich cultural heritage with a mouthwatering lunch, a living history encampment, children's activities, and a full weekend of musical entertainment. At the end of the day, relax with a glass of wine and artwork created by North Carolina’s Plein Air Artists. Come and enjoy the weekend in a city rich in American history. Mark your calendar for October 14 & 15, 2017.

Saturday (14th) open from 10:00-5:30 with wine/beer tasting from 5:00-7:00. 

Sunday (15th) open from Noon-5:30.

All tickets purchased online may be picked up the weekend of the tour at the Henderson Law Office located on the corner of West Fisher and South Church Streets. Each ticket includes one entry into each home on the tour at anytime during tour hours. Docents are available throughout each tour site to explain history, architectural features, and other pertinent details about the site. Tickets also gain you access to trolley rides. Food and wine located at Bank Street and on the Hall House lawn are for sale by private businesses. Fast Track Tours – Again this year, you may move through homes at your own pace. If doing so, please stay in the back of the group so as not to disrupt the docent’s presentation.
