One of the most popular annual events among Alameda residents is the Alameda Legacy HomeTour. It is being held this Sunday, September 22nd, and is a self-guided tour of six beautiful, and especially selected Victorian-era homes. Additionally, the Meyers House Architectural Exhibit will be open, and included there will be a Fashion and Accessory Exhibit.  The good news is that visitors can start at any of the six homes to begin their tour. The tours will include trips through the homes guided by friendly docents, many of whom will be dressed in Victorian period fashion.  Hours are 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m..

In case visitors get hungry, or want to take a pleasant break, refreshments will be available in the Meyers House Garden, along with vendors who will present displays of old house and party services. To keep track of all the information, and have a pleasant remembrance, the keepsake Tour Guidebook, which features an introduction by local author and historian Woody Minor is available before the event, and has the tour ticket and map on the back cover. 

Proceeds from this event will benefit programs of the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society and the Alameda Museum.  Both organizations are dedicated to preserving the architecture and history of Alameda.  Advance tickets are available for $30, and can be purchased by mail, online and through selected local merchants.  Day of the sale tickets are $35, and will be available at Franklin Park (at San Antonio & Morton), or at the Alameda Museum, 2324 Alameda Avenue.  Full information is available at  Enjoy the day!
