Details

Participants in the tour will enjoy spending a lovely afternoon in Pensacola’s largest residential historic district, strolling tree lined streets past many lovely historic parks, and Revolutionary War battlefield sites, and touring inside six never before opened to the public historic homes dating from the late 1800’s. Guests will enjoy traveling back in time as they stroll through the neighborhood seeing rare, vintage automobiles which will be on display along the tour route, and enjoy treats from an old-fashioned neighborhood lemonade and bake shop stand, and enjoy glass blowing demonstrations provided by First City Arts Center.

The North Hill Preservation District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and consists of a more than 50 block area just north of Pensacola’s Downtown Business District and represents one of the finest collections of Victorian and early 20th century architecture in Florida. The majority of the buildings date from Pensacola’s lumber boom between 1880 and 1914, and with the post-war prosperity of the 1920’s.
