The 2013 Tour
(our 40th and FINAL Year!)
will be held on
Saturday, November 2nd &
Sunday, November 3rd
The Homes for the 2013 Tour are:
With a dairy farm history, this home has been enhanced to offer comfort and modern amenities but has kept its beautiful views of wildlife and hayfield. The colors of autumn are seen everywhere as you enter
through a long line of maple trees to visit a home that successfully combines the past with the present.
This Victorian built in 1890 was originally the home of the Suozzo family, whose local roots trace back decades. Well-known designer Gary Lee has brought a contemporary touch to the interior – an open concept design that showcases an eclectic array of arts and numerous collectibles.
The Lake Colligan House
The Lake Colligan House was built circa 1840-60. The most well-known owners of this house were the Colligan family, famous for the Colligan Inn in neighboring Stockton. The home has been kept mostly as it originally was built, with the exception of a new kitchen addition.
The contemporary, cutting edge, white structure, will be a great visual surprise to each viewer. Guaranteed to be thought provoking and a conversation piece. The owner describes it as a white canvas which can be changed at his whim to suit the varied guests he invites.
Towle House Glen
The owner of this reproduction colonial home is an expert quilter. You will see her creating a quilt during the tour and her quilts are displayed throughout the house along with many family heirlooms and antiques.
The Opdyke House
This once two family house is now a single home. The first floors are stone; the second and third floors are frame. Surprisingly, they both retain the early construction technique of heavy pegged window frames. The back of the house sits against a sheltering rock cliff.
Johnson Tenant House
This circa 1850's home has been exquisitely restored.
Its history includes a remarkable "feet-per-day move" in the early 1950's
to save it from the widening of Route 29. In 2005 an addition was
added to enlarge the home.
The homes displayed on the Tour are nestled in a region of elegantly
restored colonial homes, quaint shops and working farm.
Some date from the 18th & 19th century.
From time to time, we also include some newer homes,
or homes with newer additions.
