Holiday Home Tour 2017 – Tickets on Sale Now!

This year’s Holiday Home Tour, set for Saturday, December 2, 2017 from 10am – 3pm, offers a peek into 10 beautiful homes in the southwestern quadrant of the borough, as well as the Chester County Art Association.  Built over a period of nearly three centuries– from 1850 to 2015–the Tour homes epitomize the way in which the area’s architectural history underlies and enhances the very modern lives of their inhabitants. Tickets are on sale online from our website and at WCPL’s main desk.  Tickets are $30 per person ($40 per person when purchased day of the Tour).

West Chester Public Library is very grateful for the generous support of our Tour Home Sponsors–CTDI, The Kit Anstey Real Estate Team, and Team Toyota of Glen Mills.
