Historic Saluda Tour of Homes
June 1 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm$20
The Historic Saluda Committee (HSC) will sponsor its biennial Historic Tour of Homes on Saturday, June 1 from 1-5PM. Stops on the tour include homes from 1900 which are now private residences, bed and breakfasts and the oldest building in town, The Saluda United Methodist Church. The restored Saluda Historic Train Depot will also be available for tours. For a new vision of Saluda, we have added an Arts and Crafts Community built by long time builder, Don Mintz.
The proceeds go to preserve the legacy of Pheobia Cheek Sullivan, a remarkable black woman, healer, leader and entrepeneur. In 1948 she founded Sullivan’s Missionary Baptist Church, a building that once echoed with the voices of Mahalia Jackson and Sam Cooke. The Saluda Land Trust has purchased the church which stands in ruins, and along with the Saluda Committee and family members, plans are underway to rebuild the temple and create a memorial to her legacy
Tickets are available from Saluda City Hall, Saluda Historic Depot, Heartwood Gallery, and Saluda Center the day of the event.
Parking is available at The Saluda Center, The Methodist Church and the Saluda Fire department. All of these locations can be accessed from Greenville Street.
