The 55th annual Tour of Homes in Blowing Rock on Friday, July 26, sponsored by St. Mary of the Hills Episcopal Parish, will feature five homes, all with varying and unique features in design and style.

Transportation will be provided from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the houses are open until 5 p.m. Although shuttles will run between the homes, the houses are close enough for a walking tour if desired.

Parking will be available in the deck at Wallingford Street and Laurel Lane, next to the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum.

Tickets are $25 and may be purchased at the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce on Park Avenue.All proceeds go to support community projects and non-profit organizations in the Blowing Rock and Boone area.

Bo Henderson and Susie Greene of Blowing Rock are co-chairing the event for the second year.

“Although the tour is sponsored by St. Mary’s, the entire community gets involved, and we could not have a successful event without these special people,” Henderson said. “We are grateful for their support and look forward to many more tours with their assistance.”

Other activities offered at the church on tour day include lunch provided at the Madrigal Café by Foggy Rock Eatery and Pub, baked goods with a Parisian theme and “timeless treasures,” featuring a variety of unique household items, including a “Wall of Wine.”

For more information, call Bo Henderson at (828) 295-9494 or Susie Greene at (828) 295-3217.
