2019 Owosso Historic Home Tour – Thank You!

   The Owosso Historical Commission would like to thank everyone who helped to make the 40th Owosso Historic Home Tour a resounding success. From the homeowners to the volunteer docents, this is an event that takes “an entire village” to pull off! First and foremost, a special thank you to the homeowners who graciously opened their homes to the hundreds of tour visitors and without whose hospitality the Home Tour would not be possible. Next a special thank you the 130 docent volunteers who helped to make this citywide event possible. Thanks to our lead sponsor, the Shiawassee Convention and Visitors Bureau, and to our other two sponsors, Woodworth Commercial and Heavenly Scent Pet Resort and Spa. Thank you, also, to all the sponsors in the home tour booklet.

   The following list of organizations and people greatly contributed to making this one of the most comprehensive Home Tours in the history of the event:

• ArtShare – Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs

• Christ Episcopal Church

• Downtown Owosso Farmers Market

• Downtown Owosso Merchants and Businesses
