Capture the holiday spirit on the New Bedford Preservation Society’s 26th Annual Holiday House Tour December 9 (4-8 p.m.) and 10 (1-5 p.m.). Starting point for both tours will be the Wamsutta Club, 427 County Street, where a pre-tour brunch will be served on Sunday, December 11 (11 to 1 p.m.) and where the Holiday Raffle and Silent Auction will be held during tour hours. Brunch reservations ($20 including tax and tip) are suggested but not required. Call the Wamsutta Club directly at 508-997-7431 for brunch reservations.
Visitors will be inspired by the varied architecture and interiors, all beautifully decorated for the season. Always popular on the tour are the costumed historic interpreters greeting visitors at one of the historic homes.
Tour tickets are $25 at the door. Advance tickets ($22) can be purchased online (through December 9 only) or at ticket sites in Greater New Bedford beginning mid-November: Arthur Moniz Gallery, New Bedford Antiques at Wamsutta, and New York Shoe Repair; in Dartmouth at The Ultimate Touch Nail Salon; in Fairhaven at Periwinkles; and in Marion at the Marion General Store.
