The Champaign County Preservation Alliance’s 25th Annual Historic Home & Garden Tour enjoyed stellar weather over the weekend with refreshing temperatures in the lower 70s and no humidity.

Historic homes and other community sites in Urbana, along U.S. Route 36 toward Westville and in Westville were part of the tour each day starting at 10 a.m.

Hundreds of volunteers, some of whom worked throughout the year to plan the event, helped ensure the milestone anniversary was a success. Proceeds from the tour go to help preserve local historic structures.
