Each year the College Park Neighborhood Association holds a Historic Homes Tour highlighting the preservation successes in the area. This past fall, with a theme of “Great Additions”, tour goers enjoyed a beautiful day visiting 10 houses and the renovated Princeton School. We covered nearly every corner of College Park to find the best additions, and the variety of houses was amazing--from seamless additions, to modern interpretations, to travel-inspired fantasies.
Some proceeds from the tour will go to Princeton School in the form of the Michael Welborn Educational Grant. The Board will decide what to do with the remaining funds in the coming weeks.
Special thanks to Carolyn Thomas, Volunteer Coordinator, and Bruce and Anne Thomas for a wonderful after-party.

The success of this tour relies greatly on the dedication of our volunteers, and you have all been wonderful!
