The Spirit of Huffman - Historic Homes Tours

Tour of Dayton’s oldest and grandest homes

Think old houses can't talk? Oh, the tales these old Huffman houses could tell. Put on your favorite walking shoes and join us for a unique tour of the Huffman neighborhood with a spirited flair!  The outing offers tour-goers a visual feast of Halloween decorations and entertainment dispersed among the Victorian homes.

Participants of the home tour will be guided through the neighborhood, established in the 1860s through the 1890s by William P. Huffman, stopping to tour nine unique homes. They will encounter an extensive collection of Halloween decorations, marble mantles, one-of-a-kind woodwork, bay windows, original hitching posts for horses, original carriage houses, carpenter’s lace, fretwork, corbels, towers, and curved-glass windows. Expect to meet up with Huffman residents of a century ago who are scheduled to make a historic return engagement this year-- just in time to make the past live again.
