The Historic Boston-Edison Association is proud to announce the 45th Anniversary of our Holiday Home Tours. To mark this milestone occasion, Boston-Edison will have three days of holiday events during the weekend of December 13 – 15.
On Sunday, December 15, our very popular Holiday Home Tour will take place. 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 and go on sale on Friday, November 15 at 10 am. These tickets typically sell out within a couple of hours, so set your alarms!
