Thanks to such great success last year, once again Mooresville is holding The Second Annual Historic Mooresville Tour of Homes on Oct 17-19.   Sponsored by the Mooresville Historic Preservation Commission and DEJ Realty, this event was created last year as a way to promote Historic Downtown Mooresville.  Proceeds of the event benefit the Mooresville Historic Preservation and The Mooresville Museum which is in the process of restoring their new home in Downtown Mooresville.

VIP Reception

This year the VIP Reception is being held in the spectacular J.A. Stewart house located on 832 North Main Street on Friday evening, October 17th from 6-9pm.  Soiree Restaurant (located in Historic Downtown Mooresville) and Say Cheese at the Grapevine will be catering the evening reception.  Tickets are limited and may be purchased for $40 at the locations on their website: Historic Mooresville Tour of Homes.

The Home ToursMooresville Mill Village bungalow

All of the homes on the tour are located in downtown Mooresville.  The tour hours are:

  • Saturday, October 18th: 10am - 6pm
  • Sunday, October 19th: 1pm - 5pm

Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 on the day of the event. Parking and ticket information is also on their website: Historic Mooresville Tour of Homes.

The Homes on Tour:

  1. 334 West Center Avenue: The Ernest Henry Miller House (1898)
  2. 318 West Center Avenue: The W.M. Lentz House (1884)
  3. 351 West Center Avenue:  The Zebulon Turlington House (1906)
  4. 832 North Main Street: The J.A. Stewart House (1896)
  5. 329 South Academy Street:  The Annie Rankin Carr House (1902)
  6. 335 South Academy Street: The Mary Howard Rankin Turlington House (1902)
  7. 354 South Academy Street: The C.L. Emiston House (1920's)

  9. 419 Harris Street:  Mooreville Mill Village (1917)
  10. 328 Messick Street: Mooresville Mill Village (Early 1920's)

This group of homes will provide an opportunity for historic home enthusiasts to see everything from small Mill homes to the grand estate on Main Street.  Visitors can start and stop at any home on the tour.  The tours are given in groups led by an experienced docent (I did this last year and it was great fun!) so that you learn about the special characteristics of each home as well as some fun history.

If you have been visiting this Lake Norman Real Estate Blogsite for very long you know I love our Historic Downtown Mooresville and I truly hope this opportunity to see so many wonderful historic homes will encourage more of our Lake Norman home owners to venture east a bit and learn more about our historic part of town!

Diane - looks like a fun thing to do and a very reasonable price for the number of houses to see. That first house is beautiful and reminds me of New England. What a great wrap-around porch.

I do enjoy touring historic homes. It is such fun to see how we used to build homes.  I love all the architectural details and seeing what was considered great design back then.  We also have a tour of our Heritage Hill area here in Grand Rapids in the fall.

Love the little peach bungalow - so cute.
