The 2022 Trinity Park Home Tour – “Home Renovations – Fresh Ideas in an Historic Neighborhood” – was a great success, with perfect fall weather and nearly 800 guests. Thanks to all who made it possible – homeowners, volunteers, sponsors, and guests!
Since 1975, the Trinity Park Home Tour has encouraged neighbors to open up their unique, historic, urban homes for everyone to enjoy and visit. While we normally hold the Tour every two years, we took a break in 2020 due to the pandemic. During quarantine, while some of us whiled away the hours baking bread, adopting puppies, learning to zoom, and even doing frontline work, others found the inspiration and motivation to tackle major home renovation projects.
This year’s Tour theme was renovation, featuring 9 homes, originally built between 1906 to 1999, that have been beautifully updated over the past several years. Trinity Park is a diverse and dynamic neighborhood, so the tour showed how a wide variety of folks have adapted to and evolved in this place, bringing new life to enduring, history-filled structures. Visitors also learned the stories behind each one.
Advance tickets ($20) were on sale online until October 15, and day-of tickets went on sale at 12 noon, for $25 at the Trinity Park gazebo. The Tour Booklet served as the ticket and included a map, as well as photos and colorful background information about each home. The tour was self-guided, with docents at each site for support.
Tour proceeds will benefit the Trinity Park Foundation, which maintains our neighborhood’s public resources like the Park and medians, and Families Moving Forward, which helps Durham families in the crisis of homelessness to find their way home.
