AAUW Amador County Presents A Walking Tour of Amador City on April 16th 

AAUW Amador County’s 44th annual Home Tour, in the captivating town of Amador City, delivers wine country charm, tours of unique foothill homes and Gold Country historical sites.

Join us on April 16th from 11:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. for an intimate view of California’s smallest, incorporated city and its Gold Rush era buildings. The homes on the tour are, in turn, historic and modern. One of the homes is a converted church and renovated 1920’s home, which have been converted to a breathtaking, live-in art studio and, a kitchen which incorporates the original altar and confessional as kitchen island and pantry. The church bell, transported from Ireland around Cape Horn, still rings. The Amador house is a delightful example of village living in a cozy, but luxuriously updated, country Victorian. A traditional Victorian, built in the 21st century, is furnished with beautiful artifacts from around the world. To complete the tour of homes; a newly remodeled Victorian, dotted with the owners’ collected treasures, includes a fond childhood memory; an old-fashioned sleeping porch. The Amador City historical sites include, the Fire House Museum, The Imperial Hotel, Amador Whitney Museum and, the Amador City Cemetery. Advance tickets go on sale at local outlets beginning March 14 for $22 or purchase on Tour day or online for $25 on Tour Day. Go to http://amador-ca.aauw.net/home-tour/ to view all purchase options.
