Join the CHRS House & Garden Tour this weekend in May

What do you give mom for Mother’s Day? Time together this weekend!

Join the 65th Annual Mother’s Day Home and Garden Tour – two days of in-person home visits, virtual tours and walking tours. You still have time to secure your pre-sale tickets!

The annual Capitol Hill Restoration Society (CHRS) House & Garden Tour is one of the highlights of the Capitol Hill calendar. After two years of pure outdoor and virtual tours it comes back with great success!

This event will be a hybrid event with in-person locations as well as virtual and walking tours. Your ticket purchase can be used on both days of the event.

Note that the new owners of the Churchill Condo who appeared on WETA “If You Lived Here” are opening their home for the tour!

Start at Hill Center (921 Pennsylvania Ave. SE) will call to receive your weekend wristband – you need this to visit one of the house tours or take part in the walking tours. Don’t forget your vaccination card and passport!
