The second weekend in October is a time architecture fans in Southern California look forward to every year. Last year (2012) was no exception as it is the traditional time of the Claremont Heritage Home Tour. It was no small feat to follow last years highly successful modern tour that mixed art and architecture and featured the homes and studios of such art world luminaries as Karl Benjamin and Harrison McIntosh. This years tour goers were not to be disappointed. Our theme of "Neighbors and Neighborhoods" highlighted the homes on Indian Hill Blvd. within walking distance of the Historic Garner House, home to our offices, historic archives, exhibition and event space.
The positive feedback was incredible and the diversity of the homes, not only in the various architectural styles, but the level of attention to historic detail left the over 600 attendees brimming with compliments. Claremont Heritage is grateful to the homeowners who opened their homes, the hundred plus volunteers that helped to create a seamless event and the many tireless hours spent by the Home Tour Committee. Our sponsors were very generous and enabled this years event to be the most successful in Heritage history.
