The structures range from a historically significant landmark located on the Centre Square, to a beautifully restored 1840s Federal Style home in Downtown, to a turn-of-the-century mansion originally constructed for one of the area’s leading industrialists, to a newly renovated portion of the Lafayette campus. Rounding out the roster is a first-time house tour twist: a “historic home of the future” that features a blend of opulent modern construction with 200 year-old antiques.
Taken as a whole, this year’s tour provides a picture of how Easton is renovating, restoring, and repurposing its historical buildings. It will also demonstrate that even the newest construction can successfully incorporate elements of our city’s past.
The self-directed tour runs from 10 a.m to 4 p.m. Tickets cost $20 in advance or $25 the day of the tour. Tour booklets will be available for pickup on the day of the tour at Riverside Park along Larry Holmes Drive in Easton from 10 a.m to 3 p.m.
