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. It all began in 1979 with the formation of the Gifford Park Association. Within two years, we saw the value of exposing people to the architecture locked behind the historic doors of our homes. Then in 1981, we offered the first of what has over the years been a flagship event not only for the Gifford Park Association, and Elgin.
Today, we are proud to be planning the 2019 House Tour. Stay tuned for updates and announcements as we begin selecting homes for the tour. We are proud to bring you an event that speaks so profoundly to Elgin's very foundations bv producing a genuine honor, respect, and love for this beautiful town that we call home.
