It is important to note that tickets purchased in advance are discounted at $45 for members and $55 for non-members, while tickets purchased at the door are $60. With each tour, participants will be welcomed into the private homes of some of Key West's residents and receive an overview from docents of the style and historical features of the home.
Key West's renovated cigar-makers' cottages, historical restorations, and lavish Victorian mansions create an intriguing architectural fusion. There are believed to be 3,000 structures in the US's largest predominantly wooden historic district in Key West. By attending the Home Tours, visitors can unlock the mystery of what's behind many of Key West's most intriguing front doors.
The proceeds from ticket sales will help support the ongoing mission of OIRF to promote the restoration and preservation of Key West's historically significant buildings.
