The 13th annual Apalachicola Tour of Historic Homes will take place Saturday, May 7, in this scenic seaport town on the "forgotten coast." Sponsored by Trinity Episcopal Church, the tour will showcase private homes and historic churches, all of which will be open to visitors from 1 to 5 p.m. (edt).

New homes as well as favorites from previous years will be open for the event. All proceeds from the tour go to the preservation and restoration fund of the 168 year old Trinity Church, will also be open for visitors throughout the day.

Registration for the tour begins at 11 a.m. (edt) at Trinity Episcopal Church at the intersection of Highway 98 and Street in Apalachicola. The ticket donation for the event is $15.00 per person, or $12.00 if purchased before the tour.

Centrally located in the Historic District, it is possible to walk, drive or bike to each location during this marvelous Spring rite. Sites vary in age, size and style, to include Colonial Revival, Greek Revival, Queen Ann and Florida Vernacular. The District is within the original 1836 town plan which evokes a sense of time and place that reflects the cultural, social and economic history of the area. Luncheon served 11:30 to 1 p.m. (edt) at the Parish Hall. Cost: $10.
