The Spirit of Huffman Tour of Historic Homes
The next tour will be in September 2024
If you’ve ever driven or taken a stroll down Linden Avenue in the Huffman Historic District, you may have been struck by the beauty of the tunnel of oak and linden trees that create a continuous canopy overhead. Or perhaps you were too distracted by the stately collection of Queen Anne, Italianate, and Eastlake Victorian homes. Especially in the fall, there’s a certain magic in the air in Huffman when jack-o-lanterns grace front porch steps and the leaves of the tree canopy transition to autumn colors. There is no better time to experience this magic than when the Huffman Historic Neighborhood Association puts on the biannual, guided home tour, “The Spirit of Huffman.” The Spirit of Huffman home tour’s tagline is, “Where Halloween and History Collide,” and, indeed it’s true, when the outing offers tour goers the only historic home tour in Dayton that incorporates Halloween. Participants of the Spirit of Huffman tour are guided through the neighborhood, stopping to tour unique, Victorian era homes. Throughout the two hour tour visitors are entertained and informed by Huffman residents of a century ago!
