Proud homeowners in Highland Park have restored some of Pittsburgh’s finest architectural treasures, and now they’ve restored the tradition of enjoying them together. The Highland Park House Tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 10, 2014 for the first time in nearly decade.

Tickets are available online and will also be available on-site the day of the tour. Tickets are $20 in advance and $22 the day of the event. Click here to purchase.

The self-guided walking tour through the historic Highland Park neighborhood starts at the rectory of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 5081 Hampton Street. There are 12 homes on the tour that span several different architectural styles – from Modern to Victorian to a cottage-style home right out of Hansel & Gretel. Each home has its own special charm.

Come see how these homeowners have restored old Pittsburgh charm or incorporated modern elements into the Highland Park community.

You can find House Tour Frequently Asked Questions on the HP House Tour page. Or you can download the HPCC House Tour FAQ’s as a PDF.
