Historical Society Sets House Tour on Sunday

A very popular seasonal Westport tradition returns Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. when the Westport Historical Society hosts its 22nd annual Holiday House Tour, followed by Twilight Soirée, a convivial wine and hors d’oeuvres celebration and silent auction. WestportNow.com Image

Tourgoers, often in caravans, come by the hundreds, not only from Westport but also from New York, New Jersey, Westchester and Fairfield Counties. For many, the tour is a standing annual date among friends, and some say it marks the beginning and inspiration for their own seasonal celebration and home decorating.

The 2008 tour, billed as “a self-guided odyssey of architecture, art and antiques,” features five private homes, plus a bonus stop at Adams Academy, Westport’s own 19th century schoolhouse, on Morningside Drive North. The Twilight Soirée follows at another elegant home.

“Part of the fun of this year’s tour is the suggested sequence, which is not chronological,” said Dorothy Curran, event chair. “House vintages range from 1834 to recent, and architectural styles run from Colonial to Italianate to field stone and hand-hewn timber.
