Preservation Kentucky’s Tour120 is an exciting new statewide heritage tourism program designed to raise awareness of the importance of historic preservation to Kentucky’s communities, and raise funds to help the nonprofits that preserve, manage and showcase them. The program launches on Saturday-Sunday, May 18-19, 2019, during National Historic Preservation Month, with tours of historic buildings —some not typically open to the public— on the same days throughout the state to make a large impact on the public and provide a cohesive branding and promotional opportunity for the sites that participate.
Dear Tour Supporter:
The NNA Home and Garden Tour brings more than 500 people from all over the area to our wonderful part of the city for a walking tour and serves as the chief fundraiser for NNA projects and activities.
The cost to stage the event is $3,000 (including advertising posters, tickets, and a descriptive program for each walker). We are asking businesses and individuals within the Northside to help defray the expenses. We love our neighborhood and the House and Garden Tour Committee hopes that you can help support the Tour!
