See Greg Rapp at the 38th OctoberTour™ of Historic Homes

For 38 years, the Historic Salisbury Foundation has been hosting the OctoberTour™ of Historic Homes. The 38th October Tour is just around the corner. Saturday and Sunday, October 12th and 13th, Salisbury, North Carolina will greet hundreds of guests as they fill the town to go on this wonderful tour of antique homes.

As autumn colors begin to arrive, the rich history and architecture of Salisbury is showcased in Historic Salisbury Foundation's annual OctoberTour™ of Historic Homes. Visitors to Salisbury get an inside peek at private, historic buildings, and experience Salisbury's charm in a select few of its ten districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Trolley rides, living history encampments, food vendors, artists and musical entertainment make this one event you don't want to miss.

The Bank Street Cafe is one of the treats of the OctoberTour™. Bank Street closes to vehicle traffic and becomes a food court where food vendors of all varieties set up, and the Historic Hall House Museum lawn becomes a stage for music performance all weekend long.

Salisbury Realtor® Greg Rapp will host an information booth at the Bank Street Cafe during the 38th annual OctoberTour™.  Greg has a magnificent collection of historic homes on the market ~ and once you see the beautiful homes on tour, it's guaranteed you will be hooked and will want to have one of these beautiful pieces of historic architecture for your own!
