Historic Lake Morton Home & Garden Tour

Mar 5, 2016
11:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Lake Morton Neighborhood Association is excited to announce that the 16th Annual Historic Home & Garden Tour will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $17.00 per person of all ages. The tour begins at Frank Lloyd Wright's Sharp Family Tourism and Education Center at Florida Southern College.

This self-guided walking, or Courtesy Florida Southern College shuttle bus tour, is open to the public and will feature about 9 homes and gardens in the South and East Lake Morton historic district. Because several homes have porches with stairs, not all tour locations are handicap-accessible.

The tour will begin at 11 am and is accessible by foot or shuttle bus. It will showcase examples of several different architectural styles such as the Federal Colonial Revival style, the English Arts and Crafts Tudor style, the Mediterranean Revival Style, and several Craftsman bungalows. Homeowners and greeters will be on hand at the homes to welcome participants and answer questions.

Buses will shuttle tour guests to predetermined stops along the tour of the homes and gardens. The buses do not stop at each house, but rather near a cluster. Significant walking is still required.
