The Wellesley Historical Society will be hosting its second annual Historical Homes Tour on Saturday, October 22. The trolley tour will take participants past five homes with Captain Tory DeFazio narrating, and putting the homes into the town’s historical context. The fifth home, 70 Curve St., will be open for participants to enter.
70 Curve St., was the home of Katharine Lee Bates, the Wellesley College professor who penned “America the Beautiful.” Built in 1907, the home has a unique history, and beautiful architecture.
There will be two tours: the first at 1:00 p.m. and the second at 3:30 p.m., and each will last about an hour and a half. Both tours begin and end at 323 Washington Street. Parking is available at the Unitarian Church next door.
Space is extremely limited. To reserve a spot on the trolley, email the Society’s executive director, Erica Dumont, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (781) 235-6690. Preferred tour times will be accommodated on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are $35, and $30 for members of the Wellesley Historical Society.
