Preservation Burlington announces its Annual Homes Tour



Preservation Burlington is pleased to announce that the 2010 Homes Tour will be held on Saturday June 26th from 12-4 pm.  Tickets are available at the Flynn Center box Office (www.flynntix.org) for $20. The tickets cannot be purchased at the homes.


Included on this year’s tour are modernist structures from the recent past located in our Queen City.  The tour will consist of various homes and public spaces with styles popular after World War II.  This era of design abandoned traditional theories on architecture and created a new, austere, geometric aesthetic that’s influence can still be seen in contemporary designs.  Feature homes are structures of the International Style and the Prairie Style.  Join us during the tour at the Spot, originally built in the 1950’s as a Phillips 66 gas station and recently renovated and adapted to a surf-style restaurant.  Light refreshments will be provided.


This year’s event will coincide with a day-long symposium, “Modernist Architecture Comes of Age.”  This symposium will be held on June 25th and was organized by the University of Vermont Historic Preservation Department and the Vermont Department for Historic Preservation.  Key speakers are from National Historic Preservation Organizations, including the Recent Past Preservation Network and the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  


The tours are self-guided with the help of numerous volunteers from the community.  The Preservation Burlington Homes Tour is a major fundraising event in which proceeds will go toward developing additional programs.
