The HRPS 10th Annual Harvest of Homes Tour

The Historic Reno Preservation Society (HRPS) will proudly present the 10th annual edition of their Harvest of Homes Tour on Saturday, September 21 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

As usual, there will be an exciting line-up of six interesting historic homes for you to see! Attendees are encourage to visit the homes in any order of their choosing, including starting at any of the six homes. There are friendly check-in volunteers at each location ready to sign you in and provide you with your wristband and a program.

The HRPS is adding a fun feature at each home: an antique vehicle from that same home’s era! History buffs, car and home fanatics, you don’t want to miss this year’s tour and lineup.

The six homes each have a unique history that makes them so interesting to explore. You will be able to wander through the HRPS Encore Home, proudly situated on an important corner in the Powning’s Additon. There are two gorgeous structures in Newlands Manor, part of the Newlands Historic District which was established in January 2017 and is now in the National Register of Historic Places. The fourth home is a stone cottage that was begun by Edmund and Elizabeth Plumb in the late 1880s and was once part of the Plumb Ranch. The fifth home is a 1939 brick two-story built in Crampton’s Addition, which was designated in 1906. This charming brick home has also been named this year’s Adaptive Reuse property! The sixth and final home is a mid-century modern ranch home built in the Southwest Terrace subdivision in 1963.
