Albany’s Annual Interior Tour of Historic Homes is a great opportunity to peek inside and see for yourself why Albany stands out. Homeowners and Hosts/Hostesses will be available to answer questions about restoration efforts, historic house maintenance and why they chose Albany as home.

Albany’s Annual Interior Tours were created by a group of friends and neighbors to share the past through the architecture of historic dwellings. They are coordinated by Albany’s Historical Interior Tour Committee and sponsored by the Albany Visitors Association.
