On Saturday, October 20th from 10AM-5PM the South End House Tour is being held; for the 44th year in a row! Hosted by the South End Historical Society, the goal of the event is to give all of the proceeds that are ever-so crucial to this Society for aiding in the preservation of the beautiful architecture, history and overall appearance of the South End neighborhood of Boston. Along with the Spring Ball, this is the only other event that the South End Historical Society hosts on an annual basis. All of the monetary earnings from both events, when combined, surmount to a staggering one-third of the Society’s total operating costs for the year. Thus, that is just further justification to the vast importance of this upcoming day.
Visitors and residents alike will be allowed the unique opportunity to be able to tour many of the most historical, valuable and finest kept residences that are spread throughout rowhouses all across the neighborhood. There is the availability to be a sponsor and therefore with these special tickets one will be provided with additional benefits during this occasion. Furthermore, there of course are general tickets as well for a cost of $25.
The South End is such an incredibly popular area of Boston for both living and visiting that even in a recent blog from this year we shared that it indeed was voted as the #1 neighborhood citywide. It thus goes to show that in order to earn such praise, these events and organizations dedicated to the upkeep of the area are as critical as ever.
