Plan to visit the Fourth & Gill 2010 Home Tour!
The Historic Fourth and Gill neighborhood celebrates the 20th Anniversary 2010 Tour of Homes on Sunday, April 18 from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person, and children under 12 are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased at the Customer Service counter at Kroger, 2217 N Broadway, two weeks prior to the tour and at the Central United Methodist Church, 201 3rd Avenue, during event hours. Tickets may be purchased until 5:00 p.m. the day of the tour.
The Tour of Homes invites guests to stroll through one of Knoxville's premier historic districts and to step inside ten gracious homes from another era. The tour, a sanctioned event of the Dogwood Arts Festival, features century-old homes as well as Brownlow Lofts, a lovely old school taking on a new life as residential lofts, and the stately Central United Methodist Church, a beautiful example of Gothic Revival architecture. In addition the tour will include a stately red-brick victorian that is now home to a locally owned business.
For those desiring a more leisurely tour, a red trolley bus, hosted by a tour guide, will be driving the tour route.
The Fourth and Gill neighborhood also hosts the Dogwood Arts Festival’s only urban walking trail. Maps detailing the neighborhood's notable trees and gardens as well as historical points of interest are available for the self-guided tour on the 1300 block of Luttrell Street. Maps are located in a special event mailbox on the west side of the street adjacent to Brownlow Lofts.
