The Renovator's House Tour was held on Sunday, October 22, 2017 from 11am-5pm on Capitol Hill. All proceeds go to The Capitol Hill Cluster School, a public school in Washington, D.C.
This community event was created by three Capitol Hill moms in 2001 as a fundraiser for their children's neighborhood public school, the Capitol Hill Cluster School. Learn more about the Cluster School here.
As home renovators in an historic neighborhood, their idea was to showcase houses that told a great story about transformation and change. Since then, over 4,000 people have attended the event and the tour has raised more than $200,000 in critically-needed funds for the Cluster School, supporting a variety of education initiatives, from new classroom technology to arts programming.
Our school includes the Peabody Early Childhood Education Center, Watkins Elementary School and Stuart-Hobson Middle School. It is the largest school on Capitol Hill, and educates more than 1,100 students each year.
Every year, generous homeowners in our community share their personal renovation story by opening their homes to tour-goers. Each home is unique, and the tour never features the same home twice. It's a wonderful way to explore our community, see beautiful renovations, and gather ideas for your own future dream home. It’s also just a lovely way to spend a Sunday on Capitol Hill while helping a local public school grow.
