The efforts of around 125 dedicated volunteers from the community make it possible to bring you the Martinez Home Tour each year. Our volunteers fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • -
    Members of the Martinez Historical Society who serve on the Home Tour Committee
    Homeowners who put their homes on the Tour
    Merchants who sell tickets to the Home Tour
    Volunteers at the Shell Clubhouse (Tour starting point)
    Docents in the private homes which are on the Tour
    Docents in the Martinez Museum
    Docents in the Shell Museum
    Volunteers in the public building -- e.g. the Martinez Junior High School in 2016
    Vintage car owners
    Local Craftsmen and Artists
    College Park Photography class under the direction of Jen Kennedy.
    Contra Costa Genealogical Society
    Bill's Ace Hardware
A HEARTY THANK YOU to all the volunteers. These men and women make Martinez a better place for all of us to live or visit. It is they who make the Home Tour possible.



The Home Tour Committee meets one evening each month to plan the Home Tour. If you
would like to volunteer to serve on the Committee, please call Carolyn Boone at 925-864-8457.

Volunteers also maintain the Home Tour website.

The website platform is a flash/HTML hybrid template. It is a JavaScript-Animated CSS template
which contains JS-based elements that add Flash-like dynamics and animation while still leaving
the template very light-weight. The website is based on template number 37350 from Blue Gel Media.
The web hosting service is provided by HostMonster.
