This weekend, home owners in Superior will open their doors to visitors at the 9th annual Superior Home and Building Tour.

  This weekend, the doors to Superior are open to all who want to learn about our community and have a great time. The doors to the Town, as well as doors to several homes and buildings, are wide open for the ninth annual Home and Building Tour.

  You’ll see an eclectic assortment of renovated homes, chock full of color, décor and great low cost ideas. Wonder what businesses used to be in our old buildings on Main St? You’ll see that and more at this fun event.

  In addition to the tour, enjoy a first class Antique Show at the restored Magma Club,  the community center in past years.  Galleries and one of a kind shops will delight you. 

  Wyatt Earp presents “A Life on the Frontier” and Steve Gerlich, US Forest Service, will share stories about the legendary Mattie Earp and Big Nose Kate. 

The town will be showing a movie featuring landscape of the area during the Home Tour Event Weekend.

  Stop by the Town Hall to see what’s in the future for Superior. The Town of Superior will be showing the train robbery sequence of “How the West was Won” the 1962 movie filmed outside of Superior throughout the day during the Home Tour event weekend. The movie will be played at the Superior Town Hall Auditorium AKA the Council Chamber. The showings will start at 9 a.m. and be playing continually through Saturday and Sunday until 2 p.m. when they will play the full digitally remastered movie. There will be no charge for this showing.

  The famous Mata Ortiz potters from Mexico will be crafting and selling their wares. Join a group for a guided hike or relax and enjoy live music. Take a peek behind the Main St buildings to see our painting project in progress.
