Mark your calendars! ROW's 2015 Back Door Kitchen Tour will be held Saturday October 10, 2015 from 11 A.M. to 5 P.M. This is the 10th anniversary of ROW's much loved annual Back Door Kitchen Tour. BDKT Chair Alicia Ross and ROW's BDKT Committee have a very special tour planned. Among the nine beautiful homes and kitchens on tour this year, the 2015 BDKT Tour will feature: a Front Street home that was previously occupied by President Woodrow Wilson; a beautifully remodeled 1898 bungalow; and a fabulously decorated Fifth Avenue mansion.
The Tour takes place in Wilmington's downtown residential historic district. In addition to the nine featured homes, ROW invites you walk our beautiful tree lined streets, with their famous "right-of-way" gardens, and experience our very special historic neighborhood. Let us show you why we love living downtown.
The Tour will take place "rain or shine." It is easily walk-able.
You may learn all the details about the 2015 Tour, including ticket information, and see a list of the 2015 Tour homes, by navigating to the Back Door Kitchen Tour page of this site. Here are some highlights about Tour tickets.

The Backdoor Kitchen Tour is the only fundraiser for Residents of Old Wilmington (ROW), an all volunteer non-profit neighborhood association dedicated to enhancing our beautiful historic downtown. Proceeds go to back into our community for beautification, preservation, restoration, and other improvements, both through ROW projects and community-based grants to other non-profits.
