Fifty Years of Fabulous – Newtown’s Holiday House Tour

 Please join us on Saturday, December 1st as we mark 50 years of holiday house tours. 

 Always held on the 1st Saturday in December, Newtown’s Holiday House Tour is an anticipated winter tradition and a festive start to the holiday season.  This year’s 50th tour promises not to disappoint. 

 The $25 cost of a tour ticket will allow entry into 6 private residences and several public buildings, including the Half-Moon Inn, home to the Newtown Historic Association.  Once inside this beautifully restored 18th century building, tour goers will enjoy period musical entertainment, hearthside colonial cooking demonstrations and refreshments of mulled cider and cheese.  

 Wear your walking shoes because all sites are within the Borough and can be easily reached by foot. 

 Tour hours are from 10:00AM to 4:00PM.  Advance tickets can be purchased at Newtown Book & Record Exchange, 120 S. State Street and on-line at the Association’s website, www.newtownhistoric.org.  On the day of the tour, purchase tour tickets at the Half-Moon Inn, Court Street and Centre Avenue and at the Stocking Works, 301 South State Street, Newtown. 

 In the event of significant inclement weather, the tour will be held on Sunday, December 2nd.

 Please, no picture taking or high-heeled shoes permitted in the houses.

 For additional information, call the Newtown Historic Association at 215-968-3914 or visit our website.


 All proceeds from the tour benefit the Newtown Historic Association and its programs dedicated to the preservation of Newtown’s historical heritage.
