holiday experience:

Home Tour

 

The perennially popular Holiday Home Tour will take place on Saturday, December 3, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm and will showcase seven homes in the Northeast and Southwest quadrants of the borough decked out for the holidays. Ranging from petite to grand, the homes blend original details with modern updates and display the homeowners’ art, collectibles, and antiques. Holiday Home Tour attendees are also invited to visit Clay Born Pottery and Textile Studio and tour the First Presbyterian Church of West Chester and will receive free admission to the Chester County History Center.

 

Door Tour

 

Created as a socially distanced replacement for the Holiday Home Tour during the pandemic shutdown of 2020, the family-friendly Holiday Door Tour was so popular the library now offers it in addition to the Home Tour! Running from Saturday, December 3 through Sunday, December 18, this self-guided tour will feature dozens of West Chester doors and porches decorated by their owners in holiday finery. It can be enjoyed at any time of day and by a group of your choice.

Note: This tour does not include entry into homes and is entirely outdoors, self-guided, and at a time of your convenience. 

Many thanks to our Holiday Tours' LEAD SPONSOR!
