CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – The New Castle Historical Society is having its 12th annual “Castles of New Castle” House Tour from 9:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Thursday, May 21.
The New Castle Historical Society, in the Horace Greeley House Museum in Chappaqua, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and interpreting the history of New Castle. All proceeds raised from the tour help the society fulfill its mission of historical discovery, education, community outreach and research.
“The New Castle Historical Society has a special place in my heart because it is the story of my adopted home …not where I grew up but where I will grow old and where we are raising our family,” said Georgia Frasch, the house tour event chair. “I have a special affection for the annual Castles of New Castle House Tour because …who doesn’t love looking at beautiful homes and gardens?”
While many of the details regarding the homes are kept under lock and key until the day of the tour, a few “teasers” have been revealed -- one home was nearly destroyed in a town-wide disaster in 1904 but managed to avoid complete devastation, while another home “explores geometry through architecture.”
House tour ticket holders also will have the opportunity to dine at the Chappaqua Tavern, Crabtree’s Kittle House, Lange’s Little Store, Old Stone Trattoria and Le Jardin du Roi for a 15 percent discount with their ticket.
Tickets for this year’s tour are $50 for members and $75 for non-members of the New Castle Historical Society. Purchase tickets here or in-person at the Horace Greeley House Museum, 100 King St. Chappaqua.
All proceeds from the tour will benefit the New Castle Historical Society.
