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)!

Come to SOPAC to pick up your tour ticket, guidebook and tour map.  The South Orange Performing Arts Center is at 1 SOPAC Way, just off South Orange Avenue at the train station.  Tickets purchased today are $30.  The tour runs 11:00 – 4:00 but we will be at SOPAC at 10:30.  Free jitneys stop at every house, running in a continuous loop for those who prefer not to drive.

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

We look forward to seeing you.
