Symphony Home Tour May 19 showcases downtown W. Dearborn

DEARBORN — Are you a design voyeur? If you’ve ever wondered what’s inside when you walk or drive by a home or a residence that catches your eye, you’re in for a real treat

Friends of the Dearborn Symphony will host its 37th annual Home Tour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m May 19, highlighting the way people live, work and play in downtown west Dearborn. The heart of this new mixed-use development, built by Ford Land and located at Michigan Avenue and Monroe Street in Dearborn’s downtown area, has turned into a vibrant area in the city.

The annual Home Tour is a fundraising event for the Dearborn Symphony. The tour features houses and condos reflecting lifestyles of residents of all ages, within walking distance of west Dearborn’s downtown revitalization.

Tickets are available from various outlets for $20 in advance, or $25 on the day of the tour at First United Methodist Church, 22124 Garrison, which will be the tour headquarters.

A jewelry and craft sale will also be held at the church.

Parking for tour participants will be available in city parking lots along Garrison Street, or at the north parking lot of McFadden-Ross, 915 S. Brady St. Additionally, Dearborn police have agreed not to ticket parking on Morley between Brady and Military for this event.
