Holiday House Tour Follow-Up

 

Phew! The Historical Homes Tour was a tremendous success last weekend! We estimate that more than 250 visitors came through during the 5 hours of the tour, and all had incredible things to say about our home. I intended to take a few photos during the tour, but getting hot cider for volunteers and answering a million questions kept me busy nearly the entire time! A page of our guest book is shown above, and there are three more pages just like it.
I was amazed at the range of questions people asked:

Who did we call to modernize our knob and tube wiring?

What was the original purpose of the two closets between the dining and living room?

What were the original library doors like?

Have we had to have any cellar work done?

What paint color was used in our bedroom?

There was even a high school student doing a research project! And at one point, I think someone was checking out our furnace?!? 

We had so much fantastic help with the tour – thank you to Jayne, our Historical Society rep; my mom, aunts, and grandparents who spent the whole day here; and all our fantastic volunteers who stood in different rooms to share details and try to answer questions! And thanks to Dad for arranging a golf outing to get Tony out of the house for the day. We couldn’t have done it all without you! 

And now we can rest for a bit. : )

    I had a wonderful time participating in your house tour. Your home is fabulous as your talents at renovating, building, creating, and decorating. I LOVED working in the library! It’s my favorite room. Enjoyed seeing your family again. Toured the other houses and had lunch at Unwind. All in all a great day.
