Partial to vintage cars? They, too, were in abundance and added to the ambiance of the day. They parked in front of the tour homes and helped create an atmosphere of a time gone by. Once inside the homes, visitors got to see the care and attention to detail that the homeowners have brought to restoring and maintaining their Victorian gems.
Almost 100 docents volunteered to share stories and histories with the tour goers, giving them a better understanding of the homes built during the first years of Monrovia, which was founded in 1886.
The final attendance tally? 520 paid admissions, the highest since 2013!
