2017-18 Key West house tours: A chance to peek inside Key West homes

When I visit Key West, I always wish I could peek inside the beautifully restored private homes in the picturesque historic district. And now I can, on annual house tours organized by the non-profit organization that has spearheaded the historic preservation movement in Key West for more than 50 years ago.

Florida Rambler is thrilled to have the Old Island Restoration Foundation as an advertiser on our site for the third year. We think it’s a great partnership: The house tours are just the sort of event our readers want to learn about. You’ll see ads for the tours on our site in 2017-18.

The tours are conducted by the Old Island Restoration Foundation and funded in part by the Monroe County Tourist Development Council.

Each tour features homes and gardens reflecting the varied tastes and originality of their owners. Some showcase homes have been scrupulously restored. Other have been ingeneously renovated. Many have art collections and antiques.

Dates for this 2017-18 Home Tour season are:

  • Dec. 27 – 28, 2017, 3 to 7 pm
  • Jan. 12 -13, 2018, 3 to 7 pm (Optional transportation provided for an additional fee on the world famous “Conch Train”)
  • Feb. 16 – 17, 2018, 10 am to 4 pm
  • March 16 – 17, 2018, 10 am to 4 pm

General admission tickets for all tours are $30 per person and $35 during the days of each tour.

Homes may be seen in any order and viewings may be split over two days; you can take your time and explore.
