Old houses tell wonderful stories. And the historic houses of Tredyffrin Township have many tales to tell once again.
The Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust presents their upcoming 7th Annual Historic House Tour on Saturday, September 24, 12 Noon – 5 PM. It’s a wonderful Main Line tradition for those who appreciate and understand the significance of preserving the region’s historic resources. The Historic House Tour is becoming a very popular fall event as it enjoyed an 85 percent increase in ticket sales in 2010!
This year’s signature event for the Trust will feature eight unique historic properties, dating from the 18th century to the early 20th century. All proceeds from the annual historic house tour go toward Phase II of the Jones Log Barn reconstruction project.
Thanks to the help and charity of many, the stone foundation has been built and is ready to hold the log structure. The Jones Log Barn joins two National Historic Register buildings—Duportail House and the Federal Barn—and, when rebuilt, it will serve as a living history museum for the community. Further information on this reconstruction project is available on the Trust website, www.tredyffrinhistory.org
For those looking to make a day of the tour and dine out afterwards, Berwyn’s popular BYO, Alfredo’s, is offering an exciting treat of a complimentary appetizer to attendees. Wear/present your tour passes at Alfredo’s and your table will receive one generous appetizer showcasing their incredible authentic Italian cuisine.
Alfredo’s is located at 668 Lancaster Avenue in Berwyn. Visit alfredobyo.com to make reservations.
