|Back Door Kitchen Tour|
“I can't remember enjoying something as much as that  Back Door Kitchen tour. You guys did a great job - I loved having docents at the houses to give a little history of the home. I have talked it up to as many people as I can think of and hope I can get lots of other folks going next year.”
About the tour:
ROW's annual Back Door Kitchen Tour opens the kitchens of nine beautiful historic homes to visitors. See the kitchens and admire their unique combinations of beauty, functionality and adaptability. You might even see something you want to add to your kitchen.
Proceeds from the tour go to fund grants for Wilmington nonprofits. Most famously, ROW purchased the statue of the Venus Flytrap that sits at the foot of Market Street. It's Southern Hospitality by Paul Hill.
The 2013 was held October 12, and features homes from South Front to North 7th. The kitchens are open from 10 am to 5 pm.
