UPDATED FOR 2017!
Each year, since the beginning of the National Arts & Crafts Conference, the Asheville-Buncombe County Preservation Society has organized a three-hour afternoon bus tour that has included stops and interior viewings of up to 4 homes anad buildings of interest to Arts & Crafts attendees. Docents accompany each tour, both on the bus and inside each home, giving a brief history of Asheville and the homes on the tour.
Guide-led bus shuttles will depart from the Grove Park Inn approximately every 30 minutes; the tour will last about 2 hours and will include a docent led walking tour of downtown sites, interiors and exteriors. Participants should be able to walk several city blocks and negotiate stairs. Spaces are filled on a first-come, first-served basis as paid reservations are received. Indicate your preference for alternative dates in the event your first choice is sold out. Paid registrants will receive a confirmation via e-mail. Tickets will be held for pickup at the Society’s tour table during the conference near the Conference Registration Desk at the Grove Park Inn. No tickets will be mailed.
Proceeds of the tour benefit the Preservation Society’s efforts to preserve Asheville and Buncombe County’s historic architecture.
