Haddam Historical Society Fall House Tour October 8th

Submitted by Elizabeth Malloy, Executive Director, Haddam Historical Society

(September 11, 2022) —On Saturday, October 8, 2022 the Haddam Historical Society will host “Fresh Faces, Old Places: The Next Generation of Historic House Owners” from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Visit and tour six architecturally distinct properties in Haddam and Higganum that are loved and respected by their owners, who range from young families to tech-savvy entrepreneurs.   All six homes offer a fascinating look at how this next generation of old house champions has found beauty and tranquility in our town’s important historic structures, while balancing careful restoration and/or preservation of historic elements with modern needs and lifestyles. Join us for a look at seamlessly blending the old with the new, to learn more about the history connecting back to some of our earliest Haddam families, and to see how old houses can be wonderful places to call home.
