Remember "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore," the Oscar-winning 1974 Martin Scorsese flick? A home that once served as a filming location for the movie will be part of the Jefferson Park Historic Neighborhood home tour next Sunday.

The 1926 Spanish colonial revival is one of nine homes on the tour, which will start at the International School of Tucson, operating in what was once Jefferson Park Elementary School, 1701 E. Seneca St. Docents in period dress will lead walking tours of the historic Lester Block.

Jefferson Park is the next neighborhood to be featured in the Arizona Daily Star's Where We Live series, exploring Tucson neighborhoods. Find out more about the neighborhood - past and present - in next week's Home + Life section.

The home tour is the neighborhood's fourth annual fundraiser, and proceeds will help reduce debt incurred during the historic nomination process. Proceeds also benefit the Lend a Hand Senior Program. Tickets are $10.

There will be a food truck round-up as well as Talavera pottery and yard art for sale, a plant sale, arts and crafts booths and a silent auction.

Tickets can be purchased the day of the event at the International School of Tucson. For more information, go to
