This Old House: Tours of Historic Provo Homes

Provo has some amazing home architecture, but typically people have to admire it from the outside.

This week, however, the Freedom Festival is letting people into some of Provo’s best old homes:

Interior tours of significant historic homes in the Franklin neighborhood will be given on Thursday, June 14 and Friday, June 15, 2012.  The tours for June 14th and 15th will begin at 666 West 300 South. Participants may come anytime between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. Tours will conclude at 7:00 p.m.

The festival also is hosting a reception and an art exhibit. The reception will take place Friday at 7:30 pm at the Provo Library. Find out more here or read the mayor’s post on this event here.

These tours are a great addition to Provo and an incredibly rare opportunity to see the interiors of old homes. Last year, my house was part of this (just days after I moved in, actually.) My work scheduled kept my participation at a minimum, but what I did see was awesome. However, I wanted to add that if you do go, please be respectful of the homes. So, like, don’t walk into closed parts of the homes, take down people’s curtains, move around their stuff, or smash their new oregano plants. But if you can avoid doing those things, this is definitely worth attending.
