House Tour Includes a Founding Family, a Women’s Enclave and Other Historic Homes

Hillsdale’s Historic House Tour returns on Saturday, August 16. This year’s tour is comprised of eight homes on one of Hillsdale’s most picturesque roads. They include the home of the author of “A History of Hillsdale” (1883), three homes that were part of a progressive “women’s enclave,” the summer refuge of a legendary Russian conductor, and several homes that were converted from 19th-century farm buildings.
