What happens at the White Rock Home Tour?

  • If you bought your ticket online, go to Hexter Elementary Will Call to pick-up your paper ticket(s).  New ticket sales are available at every tour home during tour weekend.
  • Once you safely park and arrive at a tour home, you will be welcomed by tour volunteers who will either: (1) check your printed ticket, or (2) assist you to purchase a ticket.
  • Before you enter the home, you will put on disposable booties (aka “shoe covers”) over your shoes to prevent tracking debris into the home. Alternatively, you can wear sock feet (no bare feet, please) into the home and either leave your shoes at the door, or take your shoes with you.
  • WRHT Docents (usually parent volunteers and teachers at Hexter Elementary) will guide you through the home and will happily answer any questions you have about the home.
  • Certain homes may have photography restrictions and docents will gladly assist you.
  • Enjoy the experience of touring each home and have a wonderful time! We hope you will be inspired by the architecture, interior design and landscape architecture. Most of all, we appreciate your support of the White Rock Home Tour and Hexter Elementary. See you April 21 and 22, 2018!

Don’t miss the Hexter Cafe (at Hexter Elementary) open from 11 am – 4 pm both Saturday and Sunday during the tour.   We’ll have food trucks serving coffee, smoothies, pizza, and more!  Restrooms will be available.  Come check-out our wonderful school!
