This year’s tour, themed “A Walk Down Main Street” focuses on neighborhoods along Decatur’s original main thoroughfare. Sticking with the theme of a “Walk” down Main Street, this tour was designed to be pedestrian friendly, encouraging guests to park their cars and stroll through downtown Decatur, allowing visitors to really experience the rich history and tradition of this wonderful city!

Consisting of seven homes, visitors will see a variety of beautiful home styles offered in Decatur as well as the lifestyle that comes with all the restaurants, shops, and bars within walking distance of home. Learn how these homeowners tastefully updated their historic homes without losing their charm.

Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door with proceeds going to three local organizations benefitting the youth around Decatur through scholarships and educational classes.
