This year’s tour will feature both indoor décor and outdoor entertaining, depending on the
host’s preference. Owners of historic homes will welcome guests to view beautiful decorations,
relax, mingle, and enjoy refreshments. The tour goes on, rain or shine.

With a variety of home architectural styles, sizes, and ages, Mill Hill’s nineteenth century
streetscape is one of the most interesting between New York and Philadelphia.

finance grants to assist Mill Hill home and business owners with maintaining the national
historic landmark standards protecting the area’s unique and influential architecture.
