West Hartford House Tour
November 10 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The West Hartford House Tour will take place on Sunday, November 10, 2019, from 12 to 4 p.m., rain or shine. Advance ticket holders can commence their tour at any of the residences and visit them in any order they wish. Tickets will be available the day of the event outside of 193 Sedgwick Road and 25 Buena Vista Road. Parking for this event is available on any side street or in the parking lot of Solomon Schechter School.
This year’s house tour will be in the “Old West School” neighborhood.
The area of the Old West School contains homes of various architecture types and ages. Examples of houses on this year’s West Hartford House Tour include:
- 15 Buena Vista Road, an 1840 Federal style home built for Edward Stanley
- 105 Mountain Road, a Dutch Colonial from 1917
- 193 Sedgwick Road, a brick Colonial Revival built in 1928 as a replica of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s house
- 25 Buena Vista Road, a 1940s Cape Cod style “cottage” built for a Travelers Insurance worker.
Each house has an interesting story to tell, not only about its architecture and design, but also about its original builders and past occupants. What they had in common was that they all made West Hartford their home and helped shape the landscape of today’s town. Tickets for the West Hartford House Tour are $30 in advance ($25 for museum members). Tickets are $35 after Friday, November 8 and at the door.
