Wilmington, N.C. … The Historic Wilmington Foundation announced nine homes and one historic synagogue on the 2013 Azalea Festival Home Tour scheduled for Saturday, April 13th from 1-6 p.m. and Sunday, April 14th from 1-5 p.m.
This year’s tour is a reflection of the variety of architectural styles of homes and religious buildings in four of Historic Wilmington’s National Register Districts. From the charming Carolina Cottage to the UNCW Chancellor’s mansion, the tour showcases the breadth of home styles in Wilmington’s history.
All proceeds from the Home Tour will advance Historic Wilmington Foundation’s efforts to protect and preserve the irreplaceable historic resources of Wilmington and the Lower Cape Fear region. Since 1966, the Foundation has successfully saved more than 100 historic properties from demolition.
