We are pleased to announce that we are collaborating with Preservation Sacramento for a virtual home tour in 2021!
Preservation Sacramento’s 2021 Historic Home tour is an online tour, including several unique and historic homes located throughout the city of Sacramento. Selected to ensure the safety and well-being of members, tour visitors, and homeowners, this video tour has several advantages.
The online tour is accessible for all, including those who are geographically far from Sacramento, and is accessible for those with disabilities that make physical access on tours like this more difficult. Unlike previous years, the tour is not tied to a specific neighborhood, so we chose a sampling of homes from different neighborhoods and eras. Sites throughout the city, impossible to visit using our more traditional tour format, are yours to explore.
The homes on this year’s tour include a Craftsman bungalow that’s the only historic landmark building in Natomas; a Mid-century Modern home in Sacramento’s only Eichler neighborhood; a Tudor Revival home in Curtis Park listed in the National Register of Historic Places; a 1960s concrete block auto garage converted into a unique home and art gallery; and the oldest home in Midtown, residence of a former Sacramento County Sheriff and vintner, once used as a “Headache Sanitarium.” You’ll see the homes inside and out, and learn their unique stories, exclusively available on this home tour.
The tour will be broadcast twice, on October 24 and November 7, with early and late shows, allowing flexibility for people’s varying schedules — or the ability to enjoy the tour a second time at later showings:
October 24, 2021
10 AM and 2 PM PST
November 7, 2021
10 AM and 2 PM PST
$20 for Preservation Sacramento and SacMod members; $25 for non members.
Tickets can be used for any of the four showings, or multiple times.
* Current Sacramento Modern members will also be able to buy tickets for $20 using a secret code; after you have updated your membership, we will send you the code in a separate email. Memberships are annual; if you renew or become a member now, your SacMod membership will run until December 31, 2022.

|How it works: After you purchase a ticket, you will receive a confirmation email from Preservation Sacramento (please ignore the part about printing out a QR code and bringing it to the tour site.) The week before the tour, Preservation Sacramento will send you an email with a digital tour brochure introducing you to the homes, and containing an event link. Please do not share the event link. On October 24, you can join the event via the link, either the 10 AM showing or the 2 PM showing (or both.) A separate email and link will be sent for the November 7 tour showing.|
The Historic Home Tour is Preservation Sacramento’s largest fundraiser. Other than memberships, the Home Tour is their main source of revenue to carry out projects including surveys and nominations of historic properties, advocacy and lobbying to protect historic places, and their educational programs like the Preservation Roundtable.
SacMod has worked with Preservation Sacramento on several projects over the years. They have been very supportive of our preservation efforts — and we are delighted to be a part of their 2021 tour.
Cheers — and enjoy!
