The South Orange Historical and Preservation Society's bi-annual "Gems of South Orange House Tour" will be held on Saturday, May 16, 2015 from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. There is an open call for tour homes between now and February 28, 2015.

Contrary to what you might think, tour homes need not be designer showcases. While they should be aesthetically pleasing and generally well-kept, homes may be of interest for a variety of reasons:

  • Historical homes
  • Homes whose prior residents feature in the history of the town
  • Good examples of a particular architectural style
  • Good examples of sensitive additions/renovations/restorations
  • Homes with interesting collections or gardens.

Perhaps you know of a great tour home, possibly even your own?

Homeowners should email SOHPS at info@sohps.org or call at (973) 763-2310.
