Historic Tour of Homes
With the cancellation of the annual Pumpkin Festival and all the associated traditional events, our popular Historic Homes Tour fundraiser was impacted. As you know, this event draws together people from around the country to enjoy the historic homes throughout our community. Like so many nonprofits, we are adapting our plans by offering a virtual historic homes tour this October.
There are some advantages to moving to a virtual tour! We are expanding the quantity of homes showcased, providing multiple images from our archives, and producing a high quality full-color brochure featuring each home. Images of interior design features (woodwork, historic finishes, etc.), exterior architectural highlights, and the historical significance for each property is being prepared. The focus will be Somonauk Street, but there also be several videos with homeowners from throughout the historic district.
The tour will be accessible online via our website from October 24, 2020 through January 1, 2020 for a donation of $20
