It's Time For The Tour, Sunday, September 11 "Come Home To Lakewood" House And Garden Tour Returns

Three of the featured homes welcoming you inside during the 2016 "Come Home to Lakewood" Home and Garden Tour.

The 2016 “Come Home to Lakewood” House and Garden Tour, presented by The Lakewood Historical Society is scheduled for Sunday, September 11th, from 1 to 6 p.m. This bi-annual tour invites you to explore some of the finest examples of Lakewood's diverse architectural styles, including a classic lakefront English Tudor, a stately brick Arts & Crafts, a two-family dwelling rich in character, a four square with hipped roof and full front porch, a home that brings together Prairie and Craftsman design plus a garden tour filled with lush perennials. Also included on the tour are one of Lakewood’s few remaining carriage houses, still serving a waterfront mansion and a fully-restored turreted Queen Anne Victorian, which was featured on the 2014 Home Tour as a renovation in progress.

The properties on the tour are chosen from community nominations. Some of these may be homes and businesses you've driven past and always wondered about what they looked like on the interior. Don't miss your chance to experience the properties that give our community its unique character.

Advance sale tickets for the House Tour are $25.00 and available starting July 31st. Tickets can be purchased by mail, at the Oldest Stone House, online at, or at the retail outlets listed below. A limited number of tickets may be available the day of the tour at the Nicholson House for $30. 

You can kick off your "Come Home to Lakewood" tour weekend Saturday, September 10th at the Patron Party, held at a Colonial Revival that is not on the Sunday tour. Party tickets can be purchased online, by mail, or at the Oldest Stone House during business hours. For more tour and benefit information, contact the Oldest Stone House at 216.331.7343.
