Tickets on Sale Now for Windsor House Tour!

You won’t want to miss the 2024 Windsor House Tour, Saturday, June 8 from 10 AM to 4 PM! Tickets are now available online and at five convenient locations across Windsor. This year’s tour is themed “Coming Home,” evocative of the affection each participating homeowner has for Windsor and for the houses they now call home.

This year’s tour includes a diverse array of eight private homes in addition to Grace Episcopal Church, its parsonage the Tuttle House, and the iconic Stony Hill Schoolhouse. Attendees will visit three Revolutionary-era homes, two elegant and stately 19th-century homes, and three unique early-20th-century houses. All of these homes have been lovingly tended to, renovated, and/or expanded over the years. Truly something for everyone and sure to satisfy those seeking a healthy dose of history, creative interior design ideas, and a lot of fun!

The house tour program booklet serves as your ticket, and is available for $35 in advance or $40 on the day of the tour. Program booklets may be purchased in several convenient ways, including:

  • Shop online at here. Online purchases will be available for pick up at Windsor Historical Society the week before the event, as well as on the day of the house tour.
  • In-person at The Bean@226, at selected Windsor Federal Savings branches (in Wilson, Windsor Center, and Poquonock), and at Windsor Historical Society (open Wednesday through Saturday, 11-4).

Volunteers Needed!

Friendly volunteers who enjoy meeting people are being sought to help with a special one-day event drawing hundreds to Windsor. Volunteer hosts are needed at each home to make visitors feel welcome, provide brief interpretation on interior architectural details and keep an eye on the homeowner’s furnishings and collectibles.

“Several volunteer hosts will be on duty in each home at all times, reporting to a head volunteer or liaison for each of the houses,” explains Ed Paquette, house tour chair. “The week before the tour, all volunteers will be invited to their assigned house to receive training and information about the home.”

Volunteers are asked to make a two-hour commitment as well as attend the training session. Shifts are short because many volunteers want the option of taking the tour themselves. We can accommodate groups of friends who want to volunteer together, so please share this request with friends and neighbors.

We offer all volunteers a FREE ticket to the house tour and an invitation to the Homeowner and Volunteer Appreciation After-Party at Windsor Historical Society from 4 -6 pm on Saturday, June 8, immediately following the house tour with music and refreshments.

The tour is a major fundraiser for the Society, supporting public programs for schoolchildren and adults and the operation of our historic houses, research library, and exhibition galleries. “Volunteers will have the satisfaction of knowing that they are supporting an active, community spirited museum and preservation organization in Connecticut’s oldest town,” notes Doug Shipman, Executive Director of Windsor Historical Society.

To volunteer, or for more information about the house tour, please contact Ed Paquette at 860-818-8024 or edpaq66@gmail.com.

We look forward to working with you!
