35th annual Society Hill Tour of Houses and Gardens

Event Date: 
Sunday, May 19, 2013, 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Sponsored by the Society Hill Civic Association

 

Old Pine Community Center, corner of Lombard and 4th Streets is the afternoon headquarters, the place to register for the self-guided tour, pick up your ticket and house tour map.

Consider making your first stop a brief visit to Old Pine’s historic 18th c. churchyard burial ground. Here you can get a 101 Orientation about the people who built and lived in many of the extant neighborhood houses. The graveyard is the resting place for several bricklayers, carpenters, plasterers, tradesmen and a host of Revolutionary War soldiers, patriots, sea captains, merchants and politicians.

 

Continuous tours of the graveyard conducted by Old Pine Conservancy throughout the afternoon.
