Get a glimpse inside nine homes during the annual Hyde Park Home Tour on March 1.

Presented by the Historic Hyde Park Neighborhood Association, the event highlights the neighborhood's architectural styles and allows participants to get a closer look at the verandas, gardens and workmanship.

Two new features this year include a pop-up history center with original house plans, historical photos and local experts who specialize in renovation, restoration and historic preservation. Representatives from the city of Tampa's Tree-Mendous Tampa Community Tree Program will also be on site to provide information on how to obtain free trees and further grow Hyde Park's shade canopy.

The tour begins at Kate Jackson Community Center at 821 S Rome Ave. at 9 a.m. Homes will be open for viewing until 3:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased online at, in person at the Hyde Park Village locations of Ashworth Artisan Chocolate and West Elm, or at any Coldwell Banker location.
