Since 1982, the residents, friends, families, and supporters of Olde Towne East have volunteered countless hours to organize, plan, and host an annual tour of homes. During the tour, the Olde Towne East Neighborhood Association (OTENA) showcases some of the most beautiful and historically-significant properties in all of Columbus. From stately mansions, century-old churches, and art deco penthouses, the annual Summer Tour of Historic Homes takes visitors on a journey through history, exploring the people and places that made this city great.
The Summer Tour of Historic Homes also functions as the primary fundraiser for OTENA. Funds the Association raises are used throughout the year in our continued efforts to provide residents with a safe and vibrant community.
Moreover, the tour acts as a community public relations effort, which allows OTENA to introduce the unique characteristics of this charming neighborhood to the overall Central Ohio population.
Please join OTENA in our efforts to preserve the irreplaceable history of Columbus. To view the latest information on the upcoming tour, including dates, volunteer opportunities, and ticket sales, please visit the tour page.
