The Northeast Hawley Development Association (NEHDA) invites you to explore the neighborhood’s most stunning homes. All tours begin at Quality Inn & Suites Downtown (454 James Street) starting at 10:30 am. Tours depart at 10:30 am, 11:30 am, 1:00 pm, and 2:00 pm. Advance sale tickets are available for $10 online or at the NEHDA offices (101 Gertrude Street, Syracuse 13203).  Day-of tickets are $15, cash only.

Nestled in a triangle bounded by James Street, Lodi Street, and Burnet Avenue, the Hawley-Green Historic District boasts some of the earliest—and finest—residential architecture in Syracuse. This is a real neighborhood defined by central location, desirable density and a sense of community. There is no better way to become acquainted with the charms of this area than to stroll its quaint streets and see inside its restored homes at the Hawley-Green House Tour.

217 Green Street was one of the "works in progress" featured on the 2016 House Tour. This year, guests will be able to see the finished product!

Tours begin at 10:30 am at the Quality Inn & Suites Downtown lobby, located at 454 James Street. Free parking is available in the hotel lot.  This year’s event features four never-before-toured buildings, and two houses that were under construction last year, but have since finished reconstruction. There will also be a bonus stop at Thanos Import Market (105 Green Street), where guests will learn the history of the shop while sampling some of their renowned cheese, olives, and meats.

Along with learning the history of the Hawley-Green neighborhood, guests are also able to see inside of six unique buildings to see what original features still remain.
