MORRISTOWN – The Macculloch Hall Historical Museum will offer a “Historic District House Tour: Classic to Contemporary 1810 – 2012” this fall, museum Executive Director Carrie Fellows announced.
Sponsored by J&S Designer Flooring, The Museum’s Historic District House Tour takes place on Sunday, Oct. 14, between 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Eight private historic residences will be showcased.
“Many of the home owners who have graciously opened their homes for this Historic District House Tour are women and men who chose to live in and help preserve historic Morristown, New Jersey. The Museum itself was originally a private residence. As the Museum’s executive director, I feel the Historic District House Tour is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the Museum along with other historic homes — all within walking distance of each other and the Museum. The funds raised will be used to support the Museum, its preservation and its programs.”
Built between 1810 and 2012, the historical residences selected for the tour represent the style of assorted historical periods including Victorian, Georgian Revival, Brick Manor and Federal style. The exteriors remain true to their time period. For film lovers, one of these houses was featured in Meryl Streep’s film “One True Thing.” The contemporary penthouse apartment showcased in the tour overlooks “The Green”, Morristown’s historic town common.
Tickets are available online. Advance tickets are $35 each and same day event tickets are $40 each.
