Boston-Edison Annual Holiday Home Tour
The 44th Annual Holiday Home Tour is scheduled for Sunday, December 9, 2018. The tour features five historically significant homes on display, decorated for the holiday season. Visitors will have a chance to view the fine exterior and interior residential architecture of the early 1900s. The tour transports one back to the "Golden Age" of Detroit, when Boston-Edison residents included such familiar names as Henry Ford I, James Couzens, Charles T. Fisher, and S.S. Kresge.
Sunday's tour is a combination walking and bus tour (walking is minimal). Tours typically begin at the Sacred Heart Seminary, located at the corner of Linwood Avenue and Chicago Boulevard in Detroit. Buses leave every 20 minutes from 9:40 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The tour generally lasts about two hours. Following the tour, complimentary refreshments are served at the Seminary. Tour guests receive a commemorative program with histories and photographs of the five homes.
Tickets for this event are $45 each.
