Porter County Museum Announces Annual Historic Home Tour

porter-county-museumThe Annual Historic Valparaiso Home Tour hosted by the Porter County Museum will take place Saturday, May 9, 2015 from 11a-4p. The residential neighborhoods surrounding Valparaiso’s historic downtown tell the story of the growth of a city, and the homes represent the life and culture of a vibrant community.

The seven iconic homes featured in the second PoCo Muse Home Tour represent three distinct Valparaiso neighborhoods- Hilltop, Banta, and Central- each with their own unique character. Each individual home displays unique craftsmanship and beautiful architectural styles. As you walk through these neighborhoods and homes, Porter County’s rich past is revealed as you imagine what it might have been like to live in Valparaiso at the turn of the 19th Century.

Tickets are available at the pre-sale price of $22 and can be purchased online at www.pocomuse.org or by visiting the Museum Store at 153 S. Franklin St. in downtown Valparaiso.
