Official Press Release 2007
Honesdale Historic House Tour on July 7, 2007
The Friends of the Wayne County Public Library are sponsoring their second Historic House Tour on Saturday, July 7, 2007 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The tour will start at the Wayne County Public Library at 1406 North Main Street, Honesdale and will be a self-paced walking tour of the first floors of 10 Victorian houses in the Honesdale’s Historic District. Tickets will be available at the library and the $20 ticket price will include a brochure with a map of the tour, photos, and historical information about each house.
Beverages and light refreshments for be for sale at the library. Because of the nature of the tour, children under age 8 will not be permitted on the tour. Last year’s Historic House Tour was a tremendous success with over 300 persons enjoying the architectural treasures and the festive atmosphere of North Main Street, with all proceeds going to the Library.
This year there will be 7 “new” and 3 “repeat” houses on the tour, all beautifully maintained and restored, from the impressive brick Victorian library itself to several charming smaller Victorians on East Street and several homes that have received the Wayne County Historical Society’s Historic Preservation Award because they reflect the growth and prosperity of Honesdale during the late 19th century.
Several of the homes that have been modernized, especially in the kitchen areas, still retain the features and character of their origins. Elegant birds-eye maple staircases and woodwork, built in cabinets, original fireplaces and lighting fixtures, and other period details can be found in many of the houses chosen for the tour. The Friends are proud to offer this unique opportunity to see the inside of these ten historic gems; lovely backyard and side gardens at some of them will also be part of the tour.
The Friends of the Wayne County Public Library are very grateful for the generosity of the homeowners involved, who are sharing their unique part of Honesdale’s historical heritage and who are giving substantial financial support to the library through their participation in this event. The Friends are also grateful to the Wayne County Historical Society which has generously provided relevant historical data about the houses. Their excellent new booklet, Walking Historic Honesdale is on sale at the library for those wishing to further enjoy and explore the borough’s architectural heritage. For more information call the library at 570-253-1220.
