Westport Historical Society offers a unique blend of yesterday, today – and the holidays! The 29th annual Holiday House Tour is a much-anticipated event and one of the most popular dates on the WHS calendar. “Guests always tell us that the House Tour really puts them in the holiday spirit,” says Susan Gold, Executive Director.
Six bedecked homes in Westport and Fairfield are sure to enchant tour-goers with nostalgic holiday cheer and inspiring decorating ideas. Houses include a Kings Highway Historic District home designed by Charles Cutler, the architect of Greens Farms Elementary School and Westport Bank & Trust; a unique Gothic Victorian; a custom residence filled with antique charm; a home renovated and enlarged from a 19th-century farmhouse; an 1883 Queen Anne-style house; and a Fairfield property that rose from the ashes of the Revolutionary War.
The Holiday Soiree, Friday, December 4, will be an evening of festivity, mystery, and revelry at the Lillian August Design Center in Norwalk. Roaming magicians, a tarot card reader, silent and live auctions, and a Minetto Prosecco bar are some of the intriguing merriment that awaits guests. A dinner buffet will be provided by A Dash of Salt Catering.
