Excitement is mounting for The Hoboken Historical Museum’s annual Hoboken House Tour on Sunday, October 30th.
The yearly tour features up to ten homes and condos in the area, plus the addition of special bonus stops according to the Historical Museum’s official site. As one of the highlights of the Hoboken Historical Museum’s year, the tour serves as an interactive and engaging way for museum supporters to give back and assist in fundraising for space. The event also has a high turnaround from community members and museum supporters alike, making it one of the most popular attractions of the season. This year, the appeal of the houses are expected not to disappoint, as “outstanding collection of homes that vary between traditional, mod, and eclectic decor” will be featured on the tour itself. One of the homes to be featured will be a single-family 1860s home with period details and contemporary design – and that’s just one example of what those participating have to look forward to for the tour.
The self-guided tours take about two to three hours on foot, starting at either the Hoboken Historical Museum on 1301 Hudson St., or the Fire Department Museum on 213 Bloomfield St, with three of the homes located conveniently below 5th St.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the houses on the tour can be visited in any order. If you’re interested in participating, advance tickets are $30 and $40 on the day of the tour – however, with a limit on the ticket sales, it’s suggested that those interested purchase tickets in advance. Sneak peeks and previews of those involved in the tour will be featured on the museum’s Facebook page.
Advanced tickets can be purchased on the museum site before 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 29th.
