(CONCORD, MA. November 20, 2021) On Saturday, December 11th from 11:00am to 3:00 pm get ready to turn Concord “inside out”! This twist to Concord Museum’s 11th Annual Holiday House Tour showcases the incredible outdoor spaces of 10 Concord homes. Hidden and often overlooked spaces, like porches, doorways, playhouses, barns, and cottages, will take center stage for this showcase of outdoor winter wonderlands.
Each location on the Holiday Inside Out Tour was carefully selected for its unique and architectural details and historical significance. Properties range from Georgian, Victorian, and Federal-style homes to simple New England farmhouses. This year, one of several standout historical locations includes the Emerson’s barn. The Ralph Waldo Emerson property was originally constructed in 1828 and is on the National Register of Historic places. We know visitors will enjoy the experience of walking through this beautifully decorated space.
The annual Holiday House Tour, which is organized by Concord Museum’s Guild of Volunteers, is one of the Museum’s largest fundraisers. Tickets directly support the Museum’s education resources for local schools, exhibitions reflecting inclusive historical scholarship, and public programs featuring nationally renowned historians.
Tickets include admission to 10 outdoor spaces on the Inside Out Tour, a program booklet with detailed information about each home and property, free cocoa at the Colonial Inn, and Free Admission to the new galleries at the Concord Museum including the 26th Annual Family Trees event. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling 978-369-9763 ext. 222.
On the day of the event, Saturday, December 11th starting at 10:30am tickets and maps may be picked up at the Concord Museum, 53 Cambridge Turnpike, Concord, MA. 01742.
