Marking its 89th anniversary and believed to be the oldest, most prestigious house tour in the country, the St. John’s Episcopal Church’s Georgetown House Tour will take place this Saturday, April 23.
This annual event, which attracts more than 1,600 guests each year, gives locals and out-of-towners alike the opportunity to visit historic homes in a variety of styles. Some exceptional homes and landmarks will be presented this year highlighting the charm and history of Georgetown’s past with modern design and architectural enhancements showing the evolution of the times.
