11:00 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday, April 16th & 17th, 2011

The tour will showcase the architectural and personal styles of grand living in spectacular homes through five neighborhoods linked by South Grand Boulevard: Compton Heights, Compton Hill Reservoir Square, Shaw, Tower Grove East and Tower Grove Heights.


It takes five neighborhoods to make this event a success, and there is a role for everyone.

1) Volunteer

Volunteers are still needed to:

  • Work in the tour homes
  • At the ticket booth.
  • As a Docent riding the busses telling the tour goers all about the area

Shifts are generally three hours in length, 11:00 am – 2:00 pm and 2:00 pm – 5:00pm. Volunteers receive a free admission to the tour, which can be completed over both Saturday or Sunday. Anyone interested in volunteering please contact Ann Auer at 314-772-4673 or by email at auerhouse@sbcglobal.net, or Anne Moore at (314) 664-4776 or gamblemoore1987@yahoo.com.

2) Put up a poster.

Call Anne Moore if you would like to put up a poster at work, church, school or your favorite shop or restaurant. Call Anne Moore at 664-4776 and leave your name, number of posters you would like and a phone number and address so she can drop them off. They will be ready towards the end of March.

3) Post the web page on your Facebook page and “Share” with “Everyone”

Lets get this house tour to go viral!

4) Make our neighborhood look good.

Residents are encouraged to ensure lawns are mowed, gardens are tended and any trash cleared from streets and sidewalks for the tour dates. The House Tour is our biggest marketing tool for out district and it takes all of us to make it a success.
