We continue our look at 2010 Holiday Home Tours of Dayton neighborhoods with Grafton Hill. Dayton’s best kept secret is going to open its doors to the public on Dec. 4 & 5, 2010. What’s on this tour? Seven architecturally significant historic homes including Queen Anne, Craftsman, and American Four-Square styles, in a variety of construction materials and stages of restoration. Expect this guided tour to take two to three hours, including a stop for assorted holiday food and beverages. Tours start at 5pm and 6pm Saturday, 2pm and 3pm Sunday.
Tickets are $25 and may be purchased online by sending an email to [email protected], and following the PayPal links in the reply message. You can also pay by phone with a credit card by calling Saundra Altman at Past Patterns, 937-223-3722. Get your tickets now — they make a great early Christmas present for friends and family, too!
… Additionally, at least two Open Houses will be available just before or after the tour, at nearby homes for sale. More specific information on Open Houses and other homes for sale will be sent to ticket holders, and available in printed form during the tour.
All the homes are within a short distance of each other, so don’t worry, we won’t have you walking great distances. But with all the beautiful homes in our neighborhood decorated for the holidays, you might want to! If you do, you’ll find our map showing all the tour homes plus all those for sale to come in very handy.
…Grafton Hill was designated an historic district by the city of Dayton in 1988 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

As a disclosure, I’ll be hosting one of the Open Houses at a listing -please stop by to say Hello! My personal experience with this district is that meeting the neighbors in the Grafton Hill community has been nothing but positive, and the Holiday Tour should provide a spectacular opportunity for a HouseNerd to enjoy the interiors of these remarkable homes.
