123 Harrison Street, Lynchburg VA

Tour this home on the Tour of Historic Homes. The Sneed House was built in 1894.

It’s that time of year again!  School is back in session and life is getting back to normal and the Lynchburg Historical Foundation is hosting its annual tour of historic homes.  This year the homes will be in the Garland Hill Historic District on Sunday September 22, 2013.  This is a great opportunity to tour 5 homes that were built from the mid 1800′s to late 1800′s.  These homes will be open from 1:00-4:30pm.  Tickets are $20:00 per person and all proceeds benefit the Lynchburg Historic Foundation programs.  In addition to the tour is the patrons’ party which will be held at the home of Anne Taylor and Joe James at 303 Madison Street.  Tickets to the patrons’ party are $75.00 per person and include the tour as well.

This beauty was built in 1882 and will be open for the 2013 Tour of Historic Homes

This beauty, The James Loyd House, was built in 1882.

Again this year, The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast, Lynchburg’s award winning B and B is offering two free tickets to our guests that book at least two nights with us the weekend of September 20-23, 2013.  To obtain your free tickets to the 2013 Tour of Historic Homes mention the tour when making your reservation. (See below for restrictions.)

Tickets to the Tour of Historic Homes can also be purchased the day of the tour at one of the homes on the tour or prior to the tour at the Lynchburg’s Visitor Center located at the corner of 12th Street and Church Street in downtown Lynchburg.

As many of you know, I love the character of old homes which is what brought us to Lynchburg.  Today’s modern homes have many great features but what most lack is the character that went into homes, especially those built from 1870-1920.   This blog contains exterior photos of the five homes that will be on tour.  Hopefully you will be able to attend the 2013 tour of historic homes so that you will be able to see the interiors of these homes.

Give us a call today at 434.846.1388 or go on-line at www.TheCarriageHouseInnBandB.com to make your reservation for that weekend!

Will look forward to seeing you September 22, 2013 for this annual event!
