Windsor Historical Society's April 30th, 2016 House Tour
Windsor Historical Society's beloved
biennial house tour “If These Walls Could Speak”
occurred on April 30th, 2016 from 10 AM to 4 PM.
Get the inside scoop on three centuries of
house-construction in Windsor by visiting six homes
representing the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
Informed guides pointed
out interesting architectural features in each home
and you were able to see how homeowners have creatively
and beautifully adapted historic features of their homes
to fit modern life.
tour is one of the Society’s two major fundraisers this
year, supporting public programs for schoolchildren
and adults, and the operation of our historic houses,
research library, exhibition galleries, and family learning
center. Homes on the tour (some of which have never
before been open to the public) include:
- 209 Palisado Avenue (1800)
