This year’s Westport Holiday House Tour was an unrivaled success, with more than 1,000 attendees coming from as far as New Jersey and Litchfield County to tour five Westport Homes decorated for the holidays. The After-Tour Soiree, held in a 10,000 square-foot colonial manor, was the perfect setting for a lively affair for 200 people, catered by chef Pietro Scotti of Zest and Da Pietro’s restaurants. The After-Tour Soiree, plus the luxury silent auction, raised more than $50,000 and the tallies for the rest of the Tour events are not in yet. All told, this year’s Holiday House Tour was a smashing success and provided vital support and visibility for the Westport Historical Society, one of Westport’s town treasures.
