Old Seminole Heights Home Tour Displays New Looks, History

The 14th Annual Old Seminole Heights Home Tour took place on Sunday with nine homes on display.

Opening their doors to the public, homeowners of some of Seminole Heights' best restored and most beautifully decorated homes watched as patrons of the annual poured through their doors.

Whether it's folks in search of decorating and remodeling ideas, or people who just enjoy seeing the old bungalow-style houses, each tour stop is an open house of conversation. This year's home tour was slightly different than previous events due to the number of newly built homes featured.

"We've got three new ones, which is unusual," home tour chairperson Cathey Simon said. "It gives it a good mix. I like the old homes, but you see some of the new ones, you can't help but find yourself saying, 'I could live here.' "

The tour raises money for the Old Seminole Heights Neighborhood Association, which uses the funds for improvements around the Seminole Heights community.

"We put goals in at , we plant trees throughout the neighborhood, pretty much whatever we need as long as the association agrees on it," Simon said. "This event helps us get funds to do whatever we're needed to do."
