Published 12:00 am Tuesday, October 9, 2012

In this photograph from the 1980 OctoberTour, Brooks and Cheryl Westwater of Greensboro rely on bicycles to travel from house to house in Salisbury with their children Alec and Claire. They are passing one of the houses on the tour that year, the Gaskill House at the corner of South Ellis and West Horah Street. This coming weekend, Historic Salisbury Foundation will hold its 37th OctoberTour from 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Saturday and noon-5:30 p.m. Sunday. Advance tickets are $18 for HSF members; $20 for non-members. Tickets either day of the tour are $25 and will be sold at the Henderson Law Office at West Fisher and South Church streets or at any of the OctoberTour locations. Advance tickets sold online or reserved by telephone (704-636-0103) also can be picked up at the Henderson Law Office, which will be the will-call site the day of the tour. Advance tickets also are available at many downtown Salisbury businesses, at China Grove Drug Co. and Crescent Pharmacy in Rockwell.
