In honor of today’s Herron-Morton Place Home Tour, check out these two flyer advertisements from the 1970’s, when the neighborhood’s home tours first rolled out. Note the evolution in the neighborhood’s logo between 1977 and 1979. I’m told that the original concept of the HMP logo was that each year, as more homes were rehabbed, more blooming leaves would be added to this paint can. About five years ago, the neighborhood voted to update the logo. You may find the old, the new, or both logos sprinkled throughout the neighborhood today.

    These ads are terrific! I would like to know which home in the first ad had this 45’x54′ ballroom.

    I wonder how many people outside of the neighborhood knew about the notion behind the old logo. Love it! Very creative. Glad that tidbit was recorded somewhere.
