Historic Shed Heads to Hyde Park

Share this page:

Historic Shed has teamed up with the historic Hyde Park Neighborhood to display a custom shed as part of their annual Home Tour. On March 7, the neighborhood will once again open the doors of some of its finest historic homes to the public, raising funds for neighborhood improvements and showcasing some great historic architecture.

Eight homes are on this year’s walking tour, featuring rehabilitated historic bungalows along with examples of new home in-fill designed to complement the National Register Historic District. Docents from the International Academy of Design and Technology will highlight architectural design elements at each home, and local caterers and restaurateurs will provide a progressive lunch. Antique cars are also making a first-time appearance at the Tour. The New Florida Region Model A Restorers Club of Tampa will display their beautifully restored cars at each home, enhancing the historic-period ambiance.

Day-of-event tickets are available at Kate Jackson Park for $25. Advance-sale tickets are $20 through www.HistoricHomeTours.com or from selected local merchants throughout Tampa. The Tour begins at Kate Jackson Park, with homes open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

We are delighted to be a part of this great event and look forward to spending a day amid the lovely tree-lined streets of Hyde Park. Please stop bye and say hello while you enjoy your tour!
