Keystone Heights to host historic home tour

The Keystone Heights Heritage Commission will host a tour of 21 historic homes that date back to the city’s origin in the 1920s. 

Participants can pick up a map for the self-guided tour at the Keystone Heights Historic Beach Pavilion from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, and the first 50 to show up will also get a rose for Mother’s Day. 

Deirdre Murphy, a member of the commission, said the majority of the homes date back to the Roaring 20s when people from the northeast built winter homes in the area. Her house, built in 1925, also made the list

“We have a really rich history in Keystone Heights; it’s amazing,” Murphy said in a phone interview. 

She said the participants can walk or drive to the homes on the list to view the houses, from Craftsman Sears Kit homes to Spanish Missions and bungalows. 

The home tour also kicks off National Heritage Month for Keystone Heights. Murphy said the commission is working to gather data on the history of the city in order to be a source of information for homeowners and those interested in Keystone Heights. 

The heritage commission will also host a Meet Your Neighbor event later in May.
