Gems of South Orange House Tour

One of New Jersey’s premier house tours will feature distinctive homes dating from the invention of the incandescent light bulb (1879) to the introduction of the iPhone (2007)!

Tours begin at SOPAC where each attendee will pick up the guidebook/Tour map.  The South Orange Performing Arts Center is at 1 SOPAC Way, just off South Orange Avenue at the train station.  11:00 – 4:00.  Free jitneys stop at every house, running in a continuous loop for those who prefer not to drive.

Tickets are $25 in advance; $30 day of tour.  Click the Buy Now button or send your check to SOHPS at P.O. Box 61, South Orange, NJ 07079 for an unforgettable day.  Tell your friends, too.

No children under 12, please.  No photography inside the houses.
