Old home lovers will get the chance to check out eight vintage Alameda houses this Sunday, September 26 when the annual Alameda Legacy Home Tour rolls around.

The tour, which will take place between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday, will include homes built between 1883 and 1913 of varying architectural styles. (Our little old Craftsman was on the tour last year, and I think I just finally put away the last of the things we shoved into our second bathroom to make our house presentable.) Most of the homes have had a recent renovation or are in the final stages of one, tour organizers said, offering tour participants the chance to learn how homeowners adapt their vintage homes for modern living.

Tickets for the tour, which is hosted by the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society and Alameda Museum and sponsored by Little House Cafe, are $30 in advance and $35 the day of the tour. The ticket price includes the tour, a keepsake guidebook and light refreshments in the garden of one of the homes on tour, and proceeds benefit the society and museum.

Advance tickets are available at Thomsen’s Garden Center, 1113 Lincoln Avenue; Wescafe, 1536 Webster Street; Daisy’s, 1347 Park Street; Alameda Museum, 2324 Alameda Avenue; and online, on the tour website. Day-of tickets are available at Franklin Park, 1432 San Antonio Avenue.

More information is available online or by calling 523-5907.
