The Spirit of Huffman Tour of Historic Homes

The next tour will be in October 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 busy marveling at 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 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.” Participants of the Spirit of Huffman 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!
