The Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust will hold its annual historic house tour on September 20, 2008 from 1-5 pm. The event will be held rain or shine. Tickets are $35.00 each and a limited number will be sold. All tickets are prepaid--they will not be sold at the door. Tickets can be purchased on line using a credit card or you can print an order form and mail a check. All proceeds from this event support the Trust's ongoing effort to rebuild the historic Jones Log Barn in Chesterbrook as a regional education history center. Additional information is available at www.tredyffrinhistory.org and www.tredyffrin.org.
This year's tour includes 8 historic homes from 4 centuries--18th-21st. The 21st century home was created using materials from 5 antique barns. The houses are located in Malvern, Wayne, Berwyn and Strafford. I am pleased to have my house included on the tour!
Duportail House in Chesterbrook, 297 Adams Drive (off Chesterbrook Boulevard) is the location for pick up of house tour tickets on tour day. Participants will receive a house tour badge, brochure with house addresses and a brief history of each house and a map indicating parking locations for each property. After picking up tour information, participants are free to begin touring homes starting at 1:00 pm. Houses will remain open until 5:00 pm. There is no set order to see the homes. Each house will be staffed with a Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust board member and volunteers.
