Mill Hill Holiday House Tour
Now entering its 46th consecutive year, the House Tour is Mill Hill’s signature event and a Trenton tradition. This year's tour will take place from noon-5 p.m. on Saturday, December 1, 2012. About 15 homes in the neighborhood will swing open their doors and invite people to come in from the cold to take a look around. This year's theme is "Music in the City."
The tour begins at Artworks, located at 19 Everett Alley and South Stockton Street (see map below).
Advance tickets ($15) are available for purchase online.
While the streetscape in Mill Hill presents a unified façade of row houses, inside you'll find that every property is stunningly unique. During the neighborhood's on-going restoration process, the interiors of many of Mill Hill’s properties have developed into modern, sometimes sleek, often open, but always inspiring spaces: two story dining rooms, balconies overlooking open living rooms ... In these 19th century houses, the juxtaposition of old and new molds seamlessly into one.
The Capital Singers of Trenton will be performing a 20-minute concert of seasonal selections (check back for schedule).
Advance tickets ($15) are available for purchase online. They are also available for purchase in advance ($15) from numerous locations in Trenton, Bordentown, Lawrenceville, Princeton, and Lambertville (see table below). They can be bought on the day of the tour ($20) from Tour Central at Artworks (ticket sales start at noon). For inquiries, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 609.815.1359.
The tour is run and organized by the Old Mill Hill Society and the residents of Mill Hill. It has played an important role in the restoration of the neighborhood. Money raised by the tour funds historic preservation grants that assist homeowners in maintaining the landmark standards that have helped make the neighborhood what it is today.
The OMHS acknowledges the support of the City of Trenton, Department of Recreation, Natural Resources and Culture, Division of Culture.
Free parking is available in the Artworks lot (see map below) at the beginning of the tour.
You don’t have to drive to Mill Hill. Public transport is easily accessible. The Trenton train station is only a short walk away as is the Riverline, which runs south toward Camden along the Delaware River.
