45th Annual Boston-Edison Holiday Home Tour | Sunday, December 15, 2019


The 45th Annual Boston-Edison Holiday Home Tour is scheduled for Sunday, December 15, 2019. 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. Four of this year's homes have never before been featured on our tour!


Sunday's tour is a combination walking and bus tour (walking is minimal). Tours begin at the Sacred Heart Major Seminary, located at the corner of Linwood Avenue and Chicago Boulevard in Detroit. Buses leave every 20 minutes from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The tour generally lasts about two hours. Following the tour, complimentary refreshments are served at the Seminary. Guests receive a commemorative program with histories and photographs of the five homes.

 

Tickets for this event are $45.
