The Sycamore History Museum is proud to announce that the theme of the 2017 Pumpkin Fest Historic Homes Tour is “Porches of Sycamore!” As many of Sycamore’s historic homes have beautiful historic porches, this year we are going to celebrate this beautiful feature, as well as each home’s role in Sycamore history. In addition, tours will include complete interiors of these homes. Steve Bigolin will provide a sneak preview of the whole tour as part of the Sycamore History Museum’s October 5th Brown Bag lunch.
These are the locations Bigolin will discuss that are featured on this year’s tour: 229 South Main, 519 South Main, 912 Somonauk, 423 South California, 321 West High, 706 DeKalb Ave, and the Sycamore History Museum at 1730 N. Main Street. The porches and homes will be open for everyone to enjoy on Saturday, October 28.
Information about volunteering for the House Walk will also be discussed. Volunteers earn a free ticket to the house walk if they work a 2 ½ hour shift – training is provided. Tickets are $25 for one, and $40 for a pair.
