HOUSE TOUR is this Saturday!

The Bristol Historical And Preservation Society is hosting a 10-house House Tour this weekend. All the houses on "The Old Seaport House Tour" are in downtown Bristol with the exception of  one — just north of the Poppasquash turn off on Hope Street (opposite Hillside Rd). The tour is from 10 am to 4 pm (rain or shine) and the weather is predicted to be a beautiful fall Saturday.  A crew of people have been coordinating this event for months. The booklet (ticket) is 60 pages long filled with ads and house write ups by local historians and photographs both old and new. Tickets are available at Paper Packaging and Panache or  by calling the Historical Society at 253 7223 and are $20 reserved and $25 the day of the tour. Please support the Society and all the wonderful volunteers especially the home owners who are so generously opening their homes (and working like mad) to make this day a huge success. A looping trolley on Hope and High Streets will be available all day. Hope to see you at the show! (click image once to enlarge)
Blogger note: The weather held out and the day was wonderful with an excellent turn out - many people attending from MA, CT and NH. Thanks again to all involved for making such a successful day and fund raiser for the Bristol Historical Society!!!
