Lambertville Historical Society (LHS) will host its 33rd Autumn House Tour on Sunday, Oct. 18, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Seven homes will be featured this year, as well as several additional sites, including a home that served as a symbol of entrepreneurial success in its day, a secluded cottage, and handsome structures that were the mainstay of 19th century Lambertville. Other tour high points are a grand 1890s stone church, and a museum of fire memorabilia.

Tickets are $20 in advance ($25 on the day of the tour, $20 for LHS members), and may be purchased online, or at the Marshall House, 60 Bridge Street (weekends 1-4 pm), or directly from Blue Raccoon, City Market, Homestead Farm Market, Lambertville Trading Company, River Queen Artisans Gallery, Phillips’ Fine Wines in Stockton, and Farley’s Bookshop in New Hope.

Free parking and shuttle bus service will be available on the day of the tour. The bus will continuously loop from the Lambertville-New Hope Rescue Squad parking lot, behind the headquarters at 70 Alexander Avenue (off of Phillip-Barber Road), and on to City Hall every 15 minutes from 10:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. Visitors can also park in residential areas or at parking meters that are in effect on Sunday from 1 to 9 p.m.
