Historic Home Tours

Every year, selected homeowners in Albany’s historic residential districts open up their homes for a public tour. Complete with transportation by vintage trolley or horse-drawn wagon, the home tours are priceless way to get an up-close look at the lovingly-restored historic homes in Albany.
