Our popular FREE Art and Architecture Walking Tours of Hendersonville are ready for 2020!
New this year: walking tours of the Historic West Side. As always the Downtown Tours are at 9:00 AM on Saturday mornings and depart from in front of the Center for Art & Inspiration at 125 South Main Street. For the West Side Tours we meet at the Henderson County Library on Washington Street at 6:00 PM on Wednesday evenings. The tours last approximately 90 minutes.
All tours are free of charge and no pre-registration is required. Just show up ready to walk. Find all the dates below.
Tours are led by Arts Council board member Doug Gelbert who has created over 400 architectural tours in towns across the United States and Canada. He is co-author of How About Them Apples? Be in the Know in Hendersonville and teaches the architectural course, “What House Style Is That?” at Blue Ridge Community College.
Does your group want a private Tour? Contact the Arts Council ( Info@acofhc.org) with a list of preferred dates and times to make arrangements. There is no minimum size but a $50 donation to the Arts Council is required.
Can’t make the Tour but still want to know everything there is to know about art and architecture in Hendersonville? Pick up the book Hiding in Plain Sight in Hendersonville at the Center for Art & Inspiration.
As always, dogs are welcome to accompany their well-behaved owners on all our Art and Architectural Walking Tours.
