The Globe-Miami Chamber of Commerce will host the 29th annual Historic Home and Building Tour March 9 and 10 in Globe. Tickets available both days at the old train depot in downtown Globe from 9 am to 3 pm. The last tour leaves at 3 pm.

Cost is $15 a person and $10 for children under 12.

Visitors will receive a commemorative copper ticket which will give them access to several territorial-era homes and buildings in the historic mining town of Globe. A fleet of vehicles will take visitors to each stop, where hosts will give an overview of the building and its history. Participants can spend as much time as desired at each stop.

This year’s tour includes six homes that were built between the years of 1915 and 1925. Craftsman cottages, homes that cling to the hillside and a renovation project in process are featured.

Copper Country Quilters will have their annual Pieces of Friendship show at the old courthouse through the month of March. Visitors to the Home Tour are invited to enjoy the lovely quilts on display.

An antique show at the Globe High School has become a favorite part of Home Tour weekend. The show, featuring antiques and collectibles, also is part of the Home Tour admission.

Visitors to the Home Tour can purchase tickets in advance by calling the chamber at 928-425-4495. Tickets will be available both days of the tour at the old train depot on Broad Street in downtown Globe. All in all, it promises to be a busy weekend for visitors to Globe-Miami. For more information on the Historic Home Tour and related activities, contact the Globe-Miami Chamber of Commerce at 800-804-5623.
