Victorian Housewalk in Hinsdale

Six victorian homes dating from 1874 to 2000 will be open for viewing this Sunday December 4th. Five of the homes were built during the 1880's and one was built in 2000. The Hinsdale Center for the Arts is the sponsor of this housewalk, the hours are from 1 to 5pm. Tickets are $35.00 at the door. The housewalk will begin at 8 E. Third Street in Hinsdale.

Guests are invited to walk through the main floors of six Hinsdale homes, all Victorian in style. Some are originals dating from the 1800s while others are skillful re-creations. Each will be richly decorated for the holidays, glittering with lights, echoing with carols and music. Homes on this year’s tour are all within walking distance of one another and each features a distinctive Yuletide theme:

Home for the Holidays at 210 South Lincoln Street

An English Accent at 219 East Third Street

Christmas in Provence at 122 East Fourth Street

Christmas at the Cottage at 104 East Fourth Street

A Touch of the Orient at 412 South Washington Street

An Equestrian Holiday at 513 South Garfield Street.
