10 AM to 4 PM
The Renovator’s House Tour was created by three Capitol Hill moms in 2001 as a fundraiser for their childrens’ neighborhood public school, the Capitol Hill Cluster School. As home renovators in an historic neighborhood, their idea was to showcase houses that were not necessarily perfect but definitely interesting. Since then, over 4,000 people have attended 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. This is the largest school on the Hill and educates more than 1,100 students each year.
Every year generous homeowners in our community open their homes to our ticket purchasers to see their home renovations first hand, and to share their personal renovation story. Each home is unique, and the tour never features the same home twice. Its 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 Saturday on Capitol Hill.
