HELP RESTORE LOCKERBIE'S HISTORIC ALLEYS

The Lockerbie Square Home Tour is being revived after a 20-year hiatus to raise funds to help restore and rebuild the neighborhood’s historic alleys, which are badly in need of repair. 100% of the tour proceeds will go toward repair costs and neighborhood improvements. Additional donations toward the cause are welcome!


A NOTE ABOUT SAFETY & ACCESSIBILITY

The Lockerbie neighborhood was established in the 1860s and as such, many of our public spaces and structures reflect the space and design sensibilities of those times. While we adore the charm this history brings us, please note that our brick sidewalks are often uneven, our main street is made of cobblestones, many homes have narrow doorways, and staircases can be steep. Our top priority is your safety, so please consider these factors when deciding if the tour is right for you. 


$25 advanced tickets are available for purchase on Eventrbrite
