History on display in Lambertville house tour
Lambertville Historical Society hosts its 31st Autumn House Tour on Sunday, Oct. 20.
The reason for the recent Forbes Magazine recognition of the New Jersey town as one of America’s prettiest is evident by walking through Lambertville’s historic streets and is exemplified by this year’s tour homes.
Tour participants will be able to appreciate their charm inside as well as outside. The tour includes seven historic homes, some new to the tour, as well as eight additional sites.
The tour is self-guided and takes place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance ($25 on the day of the tour) and may be purchased at LambertvilleHistoricalSociety.org, lambertvillehousetour.eventbrite.com or at the Marshall House, 60 Bridge St. (weekends 1 to 4 p.m.) or directly from some local merchants (Blue Raccoon, City Market, Homestead Farm Market, Lambertville Trading Company, River Queen Artisans Gallery, Phillips’ Fine Wines in Stockton and Farley’s Bookshop in New Hope).
Free parking and shuttle bus service will be available on the day of the tour. The bus will loop continuously from the Holcombe-Jimison Farmstead on Route 29, just north of the city limits, to City Hall every 30 minutes from 10:30 a.m. to 5:25 p.m.
Visitors can also park in residential areas or at parking meters that are in effect on Sunday from 1 to 9 p.m.
