It's Time For The Tour! “Come Home To Lakewood” House And Garden Tour Returns Sunday, September 9th

Don't miss your chance to tour this stunning Neoclassic Revival.

The 2018 “Come Home to Lakewood” House and Garden Tour, presented by The Lakewood Historical Society is scheduled for Sunday, September 9th, from 1 to 6 p.m. This biennial tour invites you to explore some of the finest examples of Lakewood's diverse architectural styles dating from the early 1900's to mid-20th Century. Included are a Cohassett Avenue Shingle-style Victorian and Colonial Revival; a completely renovated lakefront Colonial; a courtyard entry Clarence Mack-designed house; a Four-Square; a Dutch Colonial perched on a lakeside cliff and a sleek Mid-century ranch. Also included on the tour are a Neoclassic Revival, which now serves as a Lakewood business and the “Garage Mahal,” a two-story garage, the likes of which you’ve never seen.

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 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 and available after August 1st. 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.
