Bronzeville Area Residents' and Commerce Council invites you to join us this year to take part in our Annual Historic Bronzeville Home Tour. This tour consists of homes and/or churches that are of vintage and contemporary style in architecture and layout.

As BARCC begins another year, we continue to organize and implement many community projects that promote the neighborhood. The Historic Home Tour's primary mission is to showcase the Bronzeville community and to encourage others to consider Bronzeville as a place to call home.
