Our tour is over for 2017— we hope to see you on the fourth Sunday in 2018 with our next exciting tour! You can still contribute to our causes on the Donate page.

Spend a day on a lovely island, visit the splendid interiors of historic homes, and stroll through neighborhoods rich in architectural heritage.

The Alameda Legacy Home Tour takes place on Sunday, September 24, 2017, from 11 am until 5 pm.

The ticket price includes a keepsake “Legacy Guidebook” and light refreshments in the garden of one of the homes on tour.

The tour is hosted by the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society (AAPS) and the Alameda Museum, both non-profit organizations.

Once you have your “Legacy Guidebook”, begin your tour at any home, at any time, between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on tour day.





The Alameda Legacy Home Tour is a joint fundraising venture of the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society (AAPS) and the Alameda Museum.


Alameda is blessed with over 4000 buildings on the Historic Study list, including many architectural styles. Our two organizations have been helping homeowners and business people appreciate the historic nature of their properties and learn restoration techniques that will bring buildings back to their original splendor.


No home tour would be possible without generous homeowners who graciously let visitors enjoy their antique and art collections and appreciate their restoration efforts.

We have collaborated on Legacy Home Tours since the 1970s. The annual tour of historic homes is the most significant fund raising effort for both AAPS and the Alameda Museum.

Alameda, with its beautiful architecture and tree-lined streets is truly one of the best places to live in the Bay Area. Visit, take the tour, and find out for yourself.


The 2017 Tour was over on September 24, but you can still donate to the Tour and benefit the programs of the Alameda Museum and the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society. If you donate $15 or more, we will send you the Alameda Legacy Home Tour Guidebook as a souvenir gift.
