Madison Historical Society Tour of Remarkable Homes
June 24, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Get a peek inside some of Madison’s spectacular homes on Sunday, June 24th from 11am – 4pm. You will also be supporting Madison Historical Society’s with your ticket price.
For one day only, select homeowners allow exclusive access for visitors to walk through the interiors of their beautiful homes and gardens. Last year, visitors toured six private residences including an early nineteenth-century farmhouse, a charming beach cottage, two Middle Beach Road escapes, a luxury condominium, and a spacious contemporary with unobstructed views of Fence Creek. In 2018, the tour features five unique properties and an unfurnished modern brick home with spectacular gardens modeled after the Butchart Gardens of British Columbia.
Each home is remarkable for its age, size, location, or distinctive architecture and landscaping. The homes can be visited in any order and at your own pace. Guides are stationed at each location to provide background information about each home and its interesting design features and history
Hours: 11 am to 4 pm, rain or shine
