I love old and historic house tours almost as much as I love garden tours. And my friend Pattye Benson, proprietress of the Great Valley House of Valley Forge is also President of the Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust. She also is the woman who makes the Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust Historic House Tour come to life year after year. Every year is better than the year before, and not one year has disappointed. My husband and I are Patron Sponsors of the tour, and proudly so.
Travel back in time this year on Saturday September 29, 2018 from 10 AM to 5 PM. If you love history and architecture, you will not want to miss the much-anticipated 14th Annual Historic House Tour.
To celebrate historic preservation, the public is invited to attend ’Jazz it Up’ the 14th Annual Historic House Tour Preview Party on Sunday, September 16, 6 PM – 9 PM at the historic Duportail House in Chesterbrook. An evening of fun with live music, food and drinks, join us to celebrate the homeowners and the homes featured on the tour. Classical jazz music provided by the award-winning ’Jazz Mavericks’ from the Center for Performing & Fine Arts of West Chester. In addition to the historic homeowners, the preview party is a lovely thank you thank the generous individual and corporate sponsors who make the annual tour possible. Attendees also get a sneak preview of the beautiful homes featured on the 14th Annual Historic House Tour!
