NOTE: On the day of the tour you must pick up your tour booklet (which gets you into the houses) at the Stocking Works, 301 S. State St., Newtown or the Half-moon Inn, 105 Court St., Newtown.
On Saturday, December 4th, celebrate the beauty of the season with the Newtown Historic Associations holiday house tour. Now in its 58th year, this tour gives visitors the opportunity to peek into several of Newtown’s unique private residences, all dressed for the holidays.
Besides the private homes, there will be multiple public buildings open for visitors. All sites are within easy walking distance from the town center.
The $30 cost of a tour ticket also includes entry into the Half-moon Inn, home to the Newtown Historic Association. Once inside this beautifully restored 18th century building, tour goers will enjoy period musical entertainment, hearthside colonial cooking demonstrations and more.
Midway through the tour, respite can be found at several of the borough churches hosting lunches at a reasonable cost. After the tour, dine at one of the restaurants and get a head start on holiday shopping by visiting the shops along State Street.
Tour hours are from 10:00AM to 4:00PM.
Please, no picture taking or high-heeled shoes permitted in the houses.
