As part of the celebration of Geneva’s Bicentennial in 2006, the Geneva Historical Society’s 2006 Tour of Homes will feature 10 houses built between 1802 and 2005.
Those private residences, Trinity Episcopal Church and the Geneva Historical Society's Prouty-Chew Museum will be open for viewing from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, June 10. Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 the day of the tour and are available during business hours at the museum, 543 S. Main St.
The houses range from federal style to a 1950s ranch and a recently completed contemporary. Interiors vary from restorations to modern adaptations and many will have the owners’ antiques and artworks on display. Several homes also have gardens that will be open for the tour.
Tickets are also available at Rose Hill Mansion, the Geneva Area Chamber of Commerce office on the lakefront, at area branches of Five Star Bank, First Niagara Bank, Seneca Falls Savings Bank, Lyons National Bank and Community Bank. The day of the tour, tickets will be sold only at the museum on South Main Street. Each ticket stub may be entered in a drawing to win lunch for four at the Crow’s Nest, Pasta Only Cobblestone Restaurant, or Kyo Asian Bistro.
A luncheon buffet will be served from noon to 1:30 p.m. on the day of the tour at the First Baptist Church, 134 N. Main St. Lunch tickets are $7.50 each and must be purchased at the museum by June 8.
