VM Ybor Historic Home Tour

On October 28th, from 12noon – 4pm, the historic V.M. Ybor Neighborhood Association will host its Fourth Annual Home Tour.
This “not so typical” home tour features the eclectic, diverse and historic V.M. Ybor community, a historic gem, tucked just north of Ybor City and minutes from downtown Tampa. The tour features 8 historic houses, a former brick grocery store being converted to an architectural design studio, and the last operating cigar factory in Tampa. It will be sure to please local Tampa residents, historians, and visitors alike. While many homes have been restored or remodeled, they all still contain original elements that characterize our unique community.
The self guided tour will begin from the Academy Prep Center of Tampa (1407 E. Columbus Drive), where guests will receive neighborhood maps and information on each of the featured properties.
All proceeds to benefit The Dream Center, Academy Prep Center of Tampa and the V.M. Ybor Neighborhood Association.
