The 34th annual Historic Home and Building Tour is set for Saturday and Sunday, April 7 and 8 in Globe. Early-day homes that bring territorial Globe alive will be featured along with two historic churches, Holy Angels Catholic Church which is celebrating its centennial, and St. Peter’s Lutheran Church.
Tickets for the tour are $15 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. A souvenir copper ticket memento will be a reminder of some of the architectural gems of Globe’s history. Visitors will be shuttled from the train depot between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to the various stops where hostesses will explain the history and bring the properties to life.
Craftsman quality, brick construction and quaint cottages are included on this year’s tour.
The Pieces of Friendship Quilt Show will be ongoing throughout the month of March and through the Home Tour weekend. It is showing currently at the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts and will be a stop on the tour, as will the old jail.
For the second year, the historic Cemetery Tour is scheduled the evening of April 7, and again, visitors will be shuttled from the train depot to the cemetery, where they will walk through and hear from characters dressed in historic garb. Participants should wear comfortable and clothing and walking shoes for the evening tour.
The cost of this tour is $15 per person and combination tickets for the home tour and the cemetery tour are $25 per person. Buy the combination ticket prior to April 4, either online or at the chamber office or White Porch to receive a special gift for early birds.
