What should I wear?
Please dress comfortably, but respectfully. Flat, comfortable shoes are a must both for your comfort and for the protection of historic hardwood floors. Guests in high heels or shoes that could damage floors may be required to remove their shoes prior to entering a private property.

Does the Tour provide for people with disabilities?
The Tour takes place with private residences, rather than public spaces, and therefore are not often handicapped accessible. 

Are children allowed on the Tour?
The Tour is designed to provide an engaging experience for adults. Children may participate if they have an individually purchased adult ticket and the parent ensures their good behavior. Because of the risk to private property and collections, neither strollers, car seats, backpacks nor children strapped in any manner to an adult may enter private residences.  

Are Food and Drinks provided?

Food and Drinks have not yet been determined for the 2017 tour. However, we encourage you to come early to Historic Downtown Sanford, and/or stay late and enjoy one of our many fine, locally owned restaurants or bars. There are many dining and beverage locations available adjacent to the Residential Historic District.

What other general restrictions apply?

Ø No smoking, eating or drinking is allowed inside properties (unless stated otherwise by a homeowner).

Ø Please do not sit, lean on, or touch the furnishings, décor, drapes and walls.

Ø Cell phone calls distract other guests and take away from the ambience of the Tour. Please silence and put your phone away before entering private properties. You may return any necessary calls once you exit a property.
