Historical Society House & Garden Tour To Focus On Main Street

“Mainly Main Street” is the focus for Newtown Historical Society’s 2014 House & Garden Tour.

Ticketholders will be able to visit several antique homes and their hidden gardens, all within the town’s historic district and within easy walking distance of the flagpole. A professionally landscaped, stunning modern renovation is just a very short drive away.

This year’s tour, the 18th annual presentation by the historical society, is scheduled for Saturday, June 28, rain or shine from 11 am to 5 pm.

In addition to the homes and gardens on the tour, the 2014 event will also offer ticketholders a visit to the historic Newtown Meeting House, at 31 Main Street; a ten percent discount on lunch at The Inn at Newtown, 19 Main Street; and a stroll through The Pleasance, a scenic garden at 1 Main Street that is owned and maintained by The Bee Publishing Company.

Details about the properties included on this year’s tour will be announced at a later date.

Advance tickets are $25 for adults, $10 ages 8-12, and can be purchased online at www.newtownhistory.org. Early ticket sales are also available at C.H. Booth Library, 25 Main Street; The UPS Store, 261 South Main Street (within Waterfall Plaza); and at Everything Newtown, 61 Church Hill Road.
