St. Vincent's Academy - 2014 Tour of Homes & Tea


Through the generosity of presenting sponsor St. Joseph’s/Candler and Optim Healthcare, St. Vincent’s Academy will once again host this popular self-guided tour of the original 1845 Convent of St. Vincent de Paul, six private homes in Savannah’s Historic District, and this year the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist.

St. Vincent’s has enjoyed an enduring relationship with St. Joseph’s since 1875, when the Sisters of Mercy established St. Joseph’s Hospital in downtown Savannah. Proceeds from the Tour & Tea benefit the preservation and restoration of the historic Convent.

This year’s tour of homes promises to be a fascinating look inside these historic buildings. Some of the homes reflect their 19th century origin in architectural style, interiors and furnishings, while others offer an exciting contemporary approach to downtown living.

Certainly, the centerpiece of Savannah's only fall tour of homes is the elegant tea which will be served on the grounds of the Convent. Academy students will serve a delicate repast of tea, homemade confections and traditional tea sandwiches.

Come see for yourself why native Savannahians and visitors alike say this annual fall event is “the best tour in Savannah.”
