The Windsor House Tour, delayed for two years by the pandemic, returns in style this year on Saturday, June 18 from 10 AM to 4 PM! Featuring 12 properties throughout Connecticut’s historic first town, this year’s house tour offers something for everyone and is sure to satisfy those seeking a healthy dose of history, creative interior design ideas, and a lot of fun! In addition to a full array of distinctive houses, this year’s event also includes coffee, beer, books, and games, all on the grounds of Windsor Historical Society to keep participants of all ages inspired and refreshed throughout the day.

Themed “New to old and back again: Windsor’s iconic homes renewed,” the tour will feature a number of adaptively re-used historic structures as well as beautifully refurbished private homes built in the 18th through the 20th centuries. The Windsor House Tour will showcase houses of many architectural styles located in neighborhoods throughout the town, including a very walkable cluster of properties located right around the Society’s museum on historic Palisado Green.

Windsor Historical Society will serve as “house tour central,” providing a convenient location to pick up a house tour program booklet and enjoy a variety of enticing concessions. The morning will feature coffee and pastries from The Bean@226, with Luppoleto Brewing Company opening a beer tasting tent at noon through the end of the day. The House of Books and Games will be on site throughout the day to provide home- and garden-themed books and games for all ages. Participants should plan to start and end their day at Windsor Historical Society to enjoy the full Windsor House Tour experience!

The Windsor House Tour program booklet serves as the house tour ticket, and is available for $35 in advance or $40 on the day of the tour. Program booklets may be purchased online now at windsorhistoricalsociety.org. Beginning June 1, program booklets may be purchased at these convenient locations throughout Windsor: The Bean@226, Windsor Federal Savings Bank main office in Windsor Center and branch offices in Wilson and Poquonock, as well as at Windsor Historical Society. Online purchases will be available for pick up at Windsor Historical Society beginning the week before the event, as well as on the day of the house tour. You won’t want to miss it!
