On Saturday October 15th the South End Historical Society will be hosting its 43rd Annual South End House Tour. This is a fantastic event that promotes the South End neighborhood and the historical and architectural nature of this great area. I volunteered at this event a few years back and its a highly attended and usually sells out. If you are looking to get to know the neighborhood a little more, or just want to be a little nosy and check out some fabulous homes, now is your chance. If you are interested in learning a little more about the tour or purchase tickets, you can visit the South End Historical Society’s web page here. In addition to viewing some great homes, this is a wonderful way to help support a wonderful organization that has helped protect the South End’s beautiful Victorian townhouses. If it weren’t for them, the homes on the tour would most likely have been torn down decades ago.
Tickets can also be purchased at my office at 633 Tremont Street in the South End. I would call to make sure there are some left before you walk over. General tickets are $25 and there are other tickets options as well that the website explains in more detail.
Volunteers are also needed, if you are interested, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and i can connect you with one of the board members.
I hope you can make it, and if you have attended in the past, please comment on this post to share your thoughts.
