Behind Stonington’s Doors, Every House Tells a Story.
On Saturday, October 13, 2018, the Stonington Historical Society invites you to “the most beautiful seaside village in New England” for a unique opportunity to step inside some of our most beautiful homes. A self guided tour of distinctive and architecturally significant homes will carry you across four centuries. The owners of these diverse properties will open their doors for you to experience Stonington from the inside out, including fascinating stories and secrets of the people who lived there. Each home has been carefully chosen to reflect the many facets of Stonington’s architectural and oral histories.
On the day of the tour you will receive a guidebook that includes a map indicating the location of homes and short descriptions of significant features and interesting histories.
Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the gate.
Your ticket also includes admission to the Society’s Old Lighthouse Museum and the Captain Palmer House.
There’s also a Preview Party on Friday, October 12 from 6 - 8 pm — A rare opportunity to spend an evening in one of Stonington’s most elegant and historic homes.
Tour tickets are available at the following locations:
Tom’s News at 133 Water Street, the Old Lighthouse Museum at 7 Water Street or by mail.
