The Fourth & Gill 2013 Tour of Homes was a great success Sunday, April 28th, thanks in no small part to the superhuman efforts of the Tour of Homes planning committee members and their volunteers. Way to go, y’all!
We had a pretty respectable turnout despite the deluge that began the day before and continued throughout the first half of the tour. A very special thanks to all our visitors who braved the weather and supported our very fine neighborhood!
Please remember to check back for future events!
