Tour of Homes


Opening Doors for the past 60 years


Thank you for making the 60th Annual Tour of Homes a Blazing Success!!


60th Annual Blowing Rock Tour of Homes was held July 27, 2018

The annual Tour of Homes, sponsored by St. Mary of the Hills Episcopal Church, opens the doors to some of Blowing Rock’s most special private homes and offers an opportunity to admire the special features and furnishings that have been cherished by homeowners for generations. This year the featured homes are all historic, providing a glimpse into old Blowing Rock treasures. Featured are: Far Horizons, home of the Caudles; Owls Roost, home of Nan and Edgar Lawton; Merlin Glenn, home of Jim Fort; Tuckaway, home of Tracy Woody and Gene Ostrow; and Maymont, Sylvia and Cullie Tarleton’s home.

According to Tour Chairs Susie Greene and Loy McGill, in the spirit of community, the Tour of Homes and Gala have galvanized members of the Blowing Rock community to come together for sixty years to open doors and make money for worthwhile area programs. Since the Tour’s inception in 1958, over a million dollars has been given to charities. Countless individuals in the High Country have benefited from the generosity of the women and men who have participated in making the event possible.



*100% of the profits from the Tour go to High Country charitable groups.

*Tour date is Friday, July 27th 2018 from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM. The last time to buy a ticket is 3:00 PM.

*The tour will be held rain or shine.
