Newtown Borough invites you to attend its 54th Holiday House Tour. This annual event is a splendid way to kick off the holidays and enjoy the good cheer and tidings of the season as you visit 6 town residences and several public buildings.
The cost of a tour ticket includes entry into the Half-Moon Inn, home to the Newtown Historic Association. Once inside this beautifully restored 18th century building, you will enjoy period musical entertainment, hearthside colonial cooking demonstrations and refreshments of mulled cider and cheese. Wear your walking shoes because all sites are within the Borough and can be reached easily by foot.
Advance tickets can be purchased at Newtown Book & Record Exchange, 102 S. State Street and on-line at the Association’s website. On the day of the tour, purchase tour tickets at the Half-Moon Inn, Court Street and Centre Avenue and at the Stocking Works, 301 South State Street, Newtown. Children under the age of 12 are free.
In the event of major snow, the tour will be held on Sunday, December 4th. Please, no picture taking or high-heeled shoes permitted in the houses. All proceeds from the tour benefit the Newtown Historic Association and its programs dedicated to the preservation of Newtown’s historical heritage.
