EXPLORE ELGIN'S UNIQUE ARCHITECTURE

The Historic Elgin House Tour has put Elgin on the map, on the calendars, and in the hearts of people across this region. We have opened the doors to some 229 homes across ten quintessential Elgin neighborhoods since our first tour in 1981. The Historic Elgin House Tour is an open format architectural tour.  This year we are showcasing Elgin's Far East Side. You may tour the homes in any order on either of the two days. At each home docents will lead you through the house explaining it's architectural features as well information about the home's original owners, architect, or local significance. There are a number of walking lectures to choose from included in your ticket as well. For more information on the tour visit the FAQ page.
