2018 Highland Park House Tour


Proud homeowners in Highland Park have restored some of Pittsburgh’s finest architectural treasures, and now they want to share them with you. The Highland Park House Tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, 2018. Tickets are available here.

The self-guided walking tour through the historic Highland Park neighborhood starts at the rectory of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 5801 Hampton Street. There are 12 homes on the tour that span many different architectural styles – from grand Victorian to Colonial. 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 neighborhood.

All proceeds benefit the Highland Park Community Council, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Buy your tickets now!

Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 the day of the event.

Saturday, May 12, 2018
10 am to 3 pm
