It’s hard to believe it’s been so long.
In 1991, a group of Flamingo Park women invited the community to tour their renovated homes as the neighborhood emerged from blight and neglect.
Charmed by our hilly streets, our old Spanish-style homes and the neighbor-hood’s friendly, energetic spirit, some of those early tour-goers bought houses in the neighborhood and live here still. Others became regular visitors on the Flamingo Park Holiday Historic Home Tour, which has been held almost every year since.
During those years, Flamingo Park re-emerged as one of the area’s loveliest historic districts.
On Dec. 8, during the city of West Palm Beach’s 125th anniversary, we again invite residents and guests to tour homes that remain emblems of the city’s past and heralds of its future.
The nine houses opening their doors on this year’s tour range from a rarely-seen, nearly-unchanged 1920s hilltop bungalow to a new cottage that demonstrates how to build with sensitivity in a historic neighborhood to one of the neighborhood’s largest and most famous homes.
We hope to see you there.
