The annual Key West Home Tours™ are one of the oldest and longest running home tours in America, with the first tour in 1960.  Old Island Restoration Foundation (OIRF) conducts the tours and they are funded in part by our generous supporters. Each tour features lovely homes and gardens reflecting the varied tastes and originality of their owners.

You will be enchanted by exquisite restorations, creative renovations and delightful interiors featuring art collections, antiques, and much more. All proceeds from the tours stay in our local community fulfilling OIRF’s mission of “Celebrating and sustaining Key West’s unique architecture, culture and history.” Grants are provided to local home owners and non-profits to fix up their buildings in the historic district, scholarships are provided to Key West High School students and funds are used to maintain Key West Oldest House Museum and Garden.

New for the 59th Season – Bonus 6th Stop

Each of the four tours features five lovely homes. This year, we’re adding a Bonus 6th Stop to each tour. We’ll feature four different historic inns/hotels that you’ll get to explore, learn the history of and receive free drinks and nibbles too.
