Mansion Flats Home Tour 2013
Sunday, September 15, 2013
10 AM to 4 PM
The 38th annual SOCA Home Tour will feature one of Sacramento’s oldest and most significant neighborhoods. Mansion Flats is named for the large homes that dominated the landscape north of downtown Sacramento during the City’s early industrial period. Business owners and politicians built luxurious homes in both Alkali Flat and Mansion Flats and for years the area was home to the City’s most influential residents.
As urban centers declined in the middle 20th century Mansion Flats endured a period of stagnation and some of the area’s most significant structures were threatened, and some destroyed.
Today, many of the larger homes have been divided into smaller units and rented to young tenants. The neighborhood has experienced an influx of intellectuals and artists in recent years who are attracted by the stunning turn-of-the-century architecture and proximity to downtown galleries and entertainment venues. Come join your neighbors and friends for a tour of some of the neighborhoods most important buildings. See what makes this modern mix of rental housing, condos, and single family residences thrive in such close proximity to Sacramento’s urban core.
Tickets are available now for $25 and $30 the day of the tour. Buy Now!
