Tickets for the Historic District Tour of Homes go On Sale July 1st
Have you ever driven by that “Pink House” with the palm trees on Concord Road and wondered what it looks like inside? The Gann House aka Boxwood Cottage is in the Concord Covered Bridge Historic District and will be on full display on the Historic District Tour of Homes.
Constructed in 1841 by Captain John Gann, Cobb County’s first state senator, this 178-year-old beauty is showing off its best face after a recent renovation by its current owner and curator of exceptional museum like pieces, inside and out. It was also the childhood home of Agnes Bradford Barnes, mother of former Georgia Governor Roy Barnes.
This unique property, along with three other homes in the Historic District, will be part of a Tour of Homes event this fall. The two-hour guided tour, including transportation, will be held on Saturday, November 2nd and Sunday, November 3rd, with a limited number of tours conducted each day, and only twelve ticketed guests on each Tour Time.

Tickets go on sale on July 1st and will be in high demand given the limited number of seats available. So don’t miss your opportunity to experience this historic event.
