Preservation Board Moves Quincy’s Annual Victorian Christmas Event to May
The annual December tour of six of Quincy’s historical and architecturally significant private homes decorated for the holidays in Quincy has been replaced with a spring tour to be held in May. After much deliberation, the Board of the Quincy Preserves made the switch because it is has been difficult to find five or six homes within walking distance of each other to agree to participate in a tour during the busy holiday season.
May is Preservation Month, so the new tour beginning May 3, 2015 from 1 p.m.-5 p.m., will highlight restored homes. Because it takes place in warmer weather, tour-goers will also have the opportunity to enjoy the exterior details of the homes including the gardens.
The annual fall tour will still be held.
