The AHC has been presenting home tours since 1999, and after more than 20 years we continue to find wonderful examples of renovations and restorations. For 2020, we will once again have six homes from across the spectrum of Portland's residential architecture.

This self-guided tour provides the opportunity to see inside six Portland area houses, including ideas and information on how you can restore spaces lost to previous remodels, create new spaces that are sensitive to the architecture of the home, or preserve original building materials. With the never-ending struggle over house demolitions, the AHC feels it is vital to demonstrate that older homes can be adapted to a 21st century lifestyle while not losing all of their original style, historic character, and charm.

If you are considering taking on a home renovation project yourself, homeowners and contractors will be on hand to provide you with tips on everything from retaining original material to integrating modern appliances. We also know that many people just love to see inside older houses, so whether you have a house project or not, this tour is sure to be fascinating and fun!

 

Please note that the homes on tour are private and do not include mobility accommodations. It may require climbing one or more sets of stairs in order to see all of the spaces open to visitors. No children under 12 are allowed on the tour except babies in the arms of an adult or in a front pack. Children over 12 must be ticketed and closely supervised.
