Windsor Square Historic District’s 2014 Home Tour will be held Sunday, March 30. Located at Central Avenue and Camelback Road, Windsor Square is one of the most sought-after historic neighborhoods in Arizona and was recently recognized by CNN Money Magazine as one of the ten U.S. “Best Big City Neighborhoods to Live In.”

Presented by the Windsor Square Neighborhood Association, the biennial Historic Home and Garden Tour is a self-guided walking tour featuring 12 historic homes, a beautiful garden, plant societies and a new addition this year—a beer garden.

The beautiful Windsor Square neighborhood is rich with history with many homes that are 60 to 75 years old. Started in 1929, the 260-home neighborhood is considered to be one of the first suburbs of the city of Phoenix.

The tour and festivities run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will give enthusiasts a look at unique architectural styles in homes that date back to the 1930s and 1940s. During the self-guided walking tour, participants will also be able to enjoy the new beer garden hosted by SunUp Brewery, explore fine arts and crafts from street vendors, and enjoy delicious fare from many local food trucks. The cost for the tour is $15, and children under 12 are free.

Tickets will be available for purchase online in advance of the tour at www.windsorsquarephoenix.org as well as day-of-tour at Orange and 2nd Street, which is located one block east of Central Avenue and just north of Camelback Road. Discount of $1 for attendees who show light rail tickets for the day. Free parking will be available. Contact Kathy Sacks or 602-619-4444 for more information.
