Fourth and Gill Tour of Homes April 19

Posted: 04/13/2009
The Historic Fourth and Gill neighborhood presents the 2009 Tourof Homes on Sunday, April 19 from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 perperson, and children under 12 are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased at CentralUnited Methodist Church, 201 Third Avenue, during event hours. Tickets sales stop 30minutes before tour ends.

The Tour of Homes invites guests to stroll through one of Knoxville's premier historic districts and to step inside nine gracious homes from another era. The tour, a sanctioned event of the Dogwood Arts Festival, features century-old homes as well as new houses built to complement their historic neighbors. Guests also get a glimpse of Brownlow Lofts, a lovely old school taking on a new life as residential lofts, and the stately Central United Methodist Church, a beautiful example of Gothic Revival architecture.

The Fourth and Gill neighborhood also hosts the Dogwood Arts Festival's only walking tour. Maps detailing the neighborhoods' notable trees and gardens as well as historical points of interest are available for the self-guided tour on the 1300 block of Luttrell Street, behind Brownlow School. Maps are located in a special event mailbox on the west side of the street.

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