New Bedford Preservation Society's 23rd Annual Holiday House Tour
You will surely catch the holiday spirit on the New Bedford Preservation Society's 23rd Annual Holiday House Tour December 13 (4-8 p.m.) and 14 (1-5 p.m.). Starting point for both tours will be the Wamsutta Club, 427 County Street, New Bedford, MA, where a pre-tour brunch ($17 all inclusive tax and tip) will be held on Sunday, December 14 (11 to 1 p.m.) and where the Holiday Raffle and Silent Auction will be held during tour hours. Brunch reservations are suggested but not required. Call the Club directly at 508-997-7431 for reservations.
This year’s tour will feature the historic West of County Street neighborhood with several residences open for the first time, all beautifully decorated for the season. Visitors will enjoy costumed portrayals at one of the homes and will be inspired by the varied architecture and interiors, which are as diverse as the owners.
Tour tickets are $23 at the door. Advance tickets ($19) can be purchased online through December 12 or at ticket sites in New Bedford: Arthur Moniz Gallery, New Bedford Antiques at Wamsutta, New York Shoe Repair and The Surrey Shoppe; in Dartmouth at The Ultimate Touch Nail Salon; in Fairhaven at Periwinkles; and in Marion at the Marion General Store.
