The primary fund-raiser and signature event for the Torrance Historical Society & Museum is its biennial Tour of Historic Homes – a long standing tradition in the City of Torrance since 1980. This event is held on even years the second weekend in October. The Torrance Historical Society & Museum is hosting the Original Fall Tour of Historic Homes in Old Torrance (the original footprint of the City) Saturday and Sunday, October 13th – 14th, 2018, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, both days. This biennial, self guided event is open to the general public and begins at the Torrance Historical Society & Museum.

You will tour the inside of a half dozen homes, and will see how others have renovated, updated and decorated their historic homes to accommodate today’s life-style, yet managed to preserve the charming architecture and characteristics of the past.

The homes on the tour reflect an eclectic mix – which characterize and add to the charm of Old Torrance — founded 1912. Each home will have a Model A car parked in front of it courtesy of South Bay Touring A’s.

Additional elements of the Home Tour include …

  • You’ll stroll the tree-lined streets of Old Torrance
  • Special display of Hometown Hero, Louis Zamperini (in Museum)
  • Opportunity to win a Progressive Dinner for six in three Historic Homes – drawing to be held in November 2018 (winner will be notified) – ticket price TBA – Dinner date will be in early 2019

The homes may viewed in any order, on either day as a one-time entry into each home and all are within walking distance from the Museum. Local restaurants will be offering Home Tour Specials.
