Historic Germantown's 2012 House Tour
At Home in the Old German Township: A Tour of Homes in Germantown, Mt. Airy & Chestnut Hill

Walk through a unique array of homes, in buildings constructed throughout the long history of Germantown, Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill. See why the Old German Township has been justly acclaimed for its history, diversity and creativity. This tour presents the rare opportunity to see inside 8 private homes, in buildings constructed during the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Among houses on the tour this year are a marvelously intact example of the exuberant Aesthetic Movement, designed by architect George Pearson. High on a hill, a grand Italianate house, once broken up into 11 apartments, has been restored as a gracious, single family home. A stately early 20th century colonial revival home displays a totally appropriate, thoroughly contemporary, 21st century interior. All of the homes on the tour demonstrate a respect for architectural integrity and historical detail, combined with imaginative and inspired choices for living in the 21st century.

The tour is an initiative of Historic Germantown, in partnership with Mt. Airy Learning Tree.

$25 in advance, $30 the day of the tour.
