Sister Branch Event:  Tour Through Time” is the theme of the 46th Annual AAUW Amador Home Tour

Bank of Flowers at Daffodil Hill

Daffodil Hill

Enjoy a wonderful tour of historic homes in the Sierra foothills while you support the Amador Branch scholarship for girls and women!

Among unique sights are enormous structures used during the Gold Rush, fabulous murals in the first Serbian Orthodox Church in the western hemisphere, a 1930’s Romanesque Ione Brick home with perfectly preserved Art Deco interiors, and the abundance of beautiful homes on one of the first streets in Jackson.

Docents will lead ticket holders through five homes representing distinct periods, from a former miner’s cottage grown up, to a Fifties ranch home with salsa flavors.

Five additional historic sites include Sherlock Holmes’ neighborhood and flat recreated in a well-known bookstore, the recently renovated Amador CountyMuseum, itself in an historic house, and a sophisticated renovation of an historic hotel on Main St.

The tradition of an elegant tea with homemade cookies continues in the Civic Center where impressive murals tell the history of Jackson and Amador County.  Our members’ Art Show will be located conveniently in the spacious Civic Center Patio just outside.

Newly added to the festivities at the Civic Center is an array of impressive raffle baskets, provided by AAUW interest groups, individual AAUW members and non-profit organizations in the community, recognizing the importance and educational support purposes of the Tour.

Tickets:  for the Tour are $25 and are available at:  https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3327293
