Various Locations, Port Hope, ON
Restoration + Renovation = Renewal is the equation for the 53rd house tour!
Each of the eight sites has been lovingly renewed; some restored to the characteristics of the period in which they were built, while others renovated with an unconventional or contemporary twist. Each is unique in its own right, maintaining specific features of the original dwelling. Travel west on Lakeshore Road to three country locations then visit the loft, offices and homes featured in town. Some of these places have remarkable history and in certain cases have never been featured on the tour.
The event is an annual fundraiser with funds raised distributed to assist with heritage building restoration and preservation efforts in the local area. In addition, the funds are used to provide a scholarship to a student in one of the heritage trades at the post-secondary level.
