Holiday Tour of Homes
Join Manteo Preservation Trust (MPT) for the 15th Annual Holiday Tour of Homes. Included on the tour this year are several historic island homes as well as new construction using "The Manteo Way of Building".
Outer Banks Craft Distilling at 510 Budleigh Street serves as the check-in for the tour (starting at 12 p.m.). You may buy tickets and pick up a map the day of the tour. Light refreshments will also be offered here (not at the tour locations). The distillery will be hosting a tasting of their locally famous rum for participants. Manteo Cyclery will be supplying use of bikes for anyone who wants to tour by bike.
Manteo Preservation Trust sponsors the tour to encourage the public’s understanding and appreciation of the historic heritage of Manteo and Roanoke Island, both architecturally and culturally. The Holiday Tour of Homes is one of the highlights of a festive weekend of events in Manteo including the town’s holiday pageant and tree lighting on Friday evening, the Christmas parade on Saturday morning and Winter Lights at the Elizabethan Gardens on the north end of the island. Come early, shop, dine and bring in your holiday season Roanoke Island style.
