This year, the Tour of Homes will feature seven privately-owned homes open exclusively for the tour. The North Alexander School (1897) will also be open to guests along with many churches, public buildings, and other sites. Washington's three house museums will offer complimentary entry to tour attendees.

This year's Tour of Homes will also include live painting by folk artist Leonard Jones, a display by the Classic South Quilters Guild, an exhibit of 19th century Georgia pottery, a vintage car show hosted by the Memorylane Cruisers, and a performance by HIT String Band. The Woman's Club will offer a seated luncheon at their historic Club House (The cost is $12. Reservations suggested; call 706-401-3518).
