Guests on this annual self-guided walking tour will have the opportunity to learn about the histories and renovations of each of the homes and buildings and speak with the property owners during the event. Docents will also be on hand to answer any questions.
The tour starts at Ted R. Ware Plaza, 206 W. Hudgins St. Parking is located behind the Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau and throughout Historic Downtown Grapevine.
Each participant receives a guidebook and a complimentary wine tasting. Luminaries will mark each destination home.
Founded in 1844, Grapevine is the oldest community in Tarrant County. Settlers made their way to the fertile black soil of the Grape Vine Prairie and found good water, game and the nearby timber resources their families needed.
Today, modern “settlers” have found Grapevine’s Historic Township provides a rich quality of life and is a great place to call home.
Quaint, historic homes from the 1880s to the 1950s make up most of the Historic District’s housing.
