Getting the Winter blues? There are many local events to put on the agenda, including the Old Mill Hill Society's Annual House Tour of beautifully restored historical homes, to help perk you up.
The Old Mill Hill Society 43rd Annual Mill Hill Holiday House Tour will take place on Saturday December 5, 2009 from 12-5pm (snow date is Sunday December 6, 2009).
The theme of this year's tour is History in Progress and it will highlight the "before" and "after" of over 20 restored Victorian, late Federal and Gothic Revival homes decorated for the holiday season.This year's tour will also feature the work funded by the Old Mill Hill Society Neighborhood Preservation Grants Program.
To date, this project has given homeowners and developers approximately $35,000 to offset the costs of home renovation projects that range from de-conversions of multi-family units into single-family homes to repairing crumbling facades. The 1719 William Trent House will also be open to tour participants at no charge, and the City of Trenton will provide free shuttle service between the Trent House and Mill Hill.
Tickets for the tour are $15 in advance, $20 the day-of at Artworks. Advance ticket sale locations for the tour and addition information about Mill Hill can be found at www.trentonmillhill.org.
Free parking will be available at Artworks and throughout Mill Hill.
