ticket book cover 2014
The Fan District Association’s 52nd Annual Holiday House Tour will take place on
December 13th and 14th, 2014, from 1 to 6 PM each day. Richmond’s Fan District, a revitalized residential neighborhood made up of late 19th and early 20th century houses, is one of the largest and least altered historic townhouse districts in the South. The Fan District is on the National Register of Historic Places and represents one of the largest concentrations of Victorian period townhouses in the USA. The area’s name comes from avenues that “fan out”, creating spaces for small triangle parks from which the avenues begin. Participation by homeowners and volunteers in the annual Holiday House Tour enables the Fan District Association to carry out its mission, and proceeds are used to enhance the neighborhood through school projects, tree planting, park and alley refurbishments, neighborhood concerts, and collaboration with the City of Richmond Police and VCU.
