Celebrate the beauty of the season with the Newtown Historic Association’s holiday house tour on Dec. 4. 

Now in its 58th year, the tour gives visitors the opportunity to peek into several of Newtown’s unique private residences, all dressed for the holidays. The streets of the borough will be alive with the sounds of the season as tour-goers make their way to the four town residences on this year’s tour. In addition to the private homes, there will be several public buildings open for visitors.  All sites are within easy walking distance from the town center.      

The $30 cost of a tour ticket also includes entry into the Half-Moon Inn, home to the Newtown Historic Association. Once inside this beautifully restored 18th century building, tour-goers will enjoy period musical entertainment and hearthside colonial cooking demonstrations.  

Tour hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Advance tickets can be purchased at Newtown Book & Record Exchange, 102 S. State St., and online at the Association’s website, NewtownHistoric.org/housetour

On tour day, tickets can be purchased at the Half-Moon Inn, 105 Court St., and at the Stocking Works, 301 S. State St. 

Important Note:  No high-heeled shoes are allowed, nor photography permitted in the houses.
