30th Annual Holiday Historic House Tour: Honoring the Fight for Women's Rights

Sunday, December 10, 2017

1:00 p.m.5:00 p.m.

Celebrate the holiday season with seven Queens historic sites and learn about their unique histories! 

Set your own pace and visit as many sites as you choose. One ticket is good for all seven sites. Each historic house offers tours, sponsors activities, and provides refreshments and snacks. Many of the houses will have musical performances throughout the day, holiday crafts to make and take, and historically- themed seasonal displays and decorations. 

Since this year is filled with important historic anniversaries, the overarching theme will be the celebration of The Centennial of the Women's Suffrage Movement. Each house will feature a prominent woman associated directly or indirectly with the historic site. This event will be a point of reflection upon the importance of the women featured, and will greatly aid in recognizing the heritage they left to future generations.

The six sites are within walking distance. There will be a dedicated shuttle that runs between Flushing Town Hall and the Louis Armstrong House Museum. Handouts will be given to visitors for the bus times and schedule. 

For more information, contact the Queens Historical Society at (718) 939-0647 ext. 14 or email info@queenshistoricalsociety.org.

*All houses are wheelchair accessible.
