2016 Tour of Homes



October 7th-9th
Friday & Saturday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Sunday 1:00 pm – 4:00pm

The 38th annual Symphony Tour of Homes will take place October 7-9, in the gentle rolling hills of the Green Valley area.  The tour will include homes ranging from the elegant mansion, “White Oaks”, home of the President of Furman University, to a modern energy efficient home.  White Oaks was the first large home built in the Green Valley area and soon several of Greenville’s founding families followed.

The 2016 Homes Tour will take a different path this year.  The Green Valley area has seen a major increase in new homes in the past several years.  Why?  An amazing increase in activity in Travelers Rest and the Swamp Rabbit Trail, proximity to Furman, and the Green Valley Country Club.  The diversity of lot sizes accommodates mansions while the influx of new homes is found in modern construction, especially in energy efficient design.  So it is, that we move from mansion to modern on this year’s Tour!

In celebration of the Tour, an elegant Patron Party honoring the homeowners and Tour sponsors will be held in a spacious newer home on Tuesday, October 4th, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Delicious food, great wine, and live music will provide a festive prelude to the weekend events.  Advance ticket purchase is required.

Ticket prices are $20 in advance and $25 on Tour days.
All proceeds will benefit the Greenville Symphony Orchestra.

***This is a self-guided tour.  You can visit the homes in any order that you prefer and take as much time as you would like at each home.  There will be volunteers on hand at each home to answer any questions that you may have.  The Tour will be held rain or shine.  Thank you for supporting our fabulous symphony and we hope you enjoy this year’s Tour of Homes!
