We’re thrilled that the historic Mt. Hope and Highland neighborhood is host to this year’s House and Garden Tour June 7th and 8th, and we wanted to post some previews of the tour. Advance tickets are on sale now, $18 for Landmark Society members & $22 for nonmembers. Check out the House and Garden Tour page for complete details and to purchase your tickets now. Don’t delay!
Do you prefer inside or out?
Get both at the 44th Annual House and Garden Tour this weekend!
Ah, the comforts of the controlled indoor environment. The color schemes that are most compatible, the artwork lit so beautifully, the carefully thought out placement of furnishings and fabrics.
But then, there’s the exhilaration of the slightly wilder out of doors. The breeze ruffling through the tall irises’ beards, the intrusion of the cardinal’s red splash among the pastel blooms, the change of light and shadow on as the clouds cross the sky.
What do they have in common? You can enjoy both on this weekend’s 44th Annual House and Garden Tour! Whether you prefer the interiors with their spectacular architecture and no detail left undone or the beautifully designed gardens and yards with Mother Nature adding a few serendipitous touches, you don’t want to miss this. 10 private homes and gardens will be open for ticket holders on Saturday and Sunday, from 10 am to 4 pm each day.
And what better neighborhood to celebrate the joys of indoor and outdoor pleasures? The Mt Hope and Highland Historic Neighborhood is nestled next to Highland Park and the former Mt. Hope Nursery Grounds. The houses showcase some of the finest architects of the late 19th and early 20th century. It is a symbiotic relationship, and one that will be open to you this weekend only.
Advance tickets can be purchased at Parkleigh, corner of Park Avenue and Goodman Street, or by clicking here. On the days of the tour you will find limited quantities of tickets at Lamberton Conservatory in Highland Park (Saturday and Sunday only.)
