VM Ybor Historic Home Tour 2017

On Sunday, October 29 from 12noon – 4pm, the V.M. Ybor Neighborhood Association will host its Seventh Home Tour.  The V.M. Ybor neighborhood was named for Vicente Martinez Ybor, the Spanish founder of Ybor City’s Cigar Industry. A true gem tucked just north of Ybor City and minutes from downtown Tampa.

This “not so typical” home tour features the eclectic, diverse and historic V.M. Ybor community.  The event features 8 unique homes, Cuscaden Pool, and a mural-filled Service Station turned live-work space.  While many homes have been restored or remodeled, they all still contain original elements that characterize the community. The self-guided tour will begin from Cuscaden Pool (2900 N. 15th Street), where guests will receive neighborhood maps and information on each of the featured properties.


When: Sunday, October 29th 2017, 12noon to 4:00pm

Where: Self-guided tour starts at Cuscaden Pool Building – 2900 N. 15th Street and  includes the entire V.M. Ybor neighborhood

Tickets: $10.00 per person in advance (online at www.vmyborhometour.com

$15.00 day of event

All proceeds to benefit the VM Ybor Neighborhood Association.
