Fourth And Gill Tour Of Homes In Knoxville Is April 28

Monday, April 1, 2013

The Historic Fourth and Gill neighborhood in Knoxville will be holding the 2013 Tour of Homes on Sunday, April 28, from 1-6 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person and children under 12 are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased at the Central United Methodist Church, 201 3rd Avenue, during event hours. Tickets may be purchased until 5 p.m. the day of the tour.

Fourth and Gill is one of Knoxville’s most beloved historic neighborhoods, and this is the first time since 2010 that its homes have been open to the public. The Tour of Homes invites guests inside six historic homes, one beautiful new home and stately Central United Methodist Church.  Imagine the gracious living of the Victorian and Craftsman eras, and see how our homes have been adapted to life in the 21st century.

The Tour of Homes is a sanctioned event of the Dogwood Arts Festival, and the Fourth and Gill Neighborhood is also the Festival’s original urban walking trail.  Guests are invited to stroll the neighborhood’s sidewalks amidst glorious late spring trees and blossoms.  Maps detailing the neighborhood’s notable trees and gardens as well as historical points of interest are available for a self-guided tour on the 1300 block of Luttrell Street. Maps are located in a special event mailbox on the west side of the street adjacent to Brownlow Lofts.

For those desiring a more leisurely tour, a red trolley bus, hosted by a tour guide, will be driving the tour route transporting guests to each home.

Located less than two miles from downtown Knoxville, the Historic Fourth and Gill Neighborhood features over 280 residential structures, including single family homes, duplexes, and apartment buildings. Many of the homes were designed by some of Knoxville’s most notable architects, including George F. Barber and Joseph Bauman.

On the other hand, I want to think that maybe this year’s celebration will mark a period in our history in which a new movement ... (click for more)
