The WCW-sponsored Woodbury Holiday House Tour, held annually, draws visitors from all around
the State. Each year, it raises funds for a range of local charities,
including the scholarship fund and the community food and fuel bank. This year's tour will include five homes, most of them vintage, all of them delightfully decorated for the holidays. It will also include a landmark, King Solomon's Lodge No. 7 Masonic Temple.
Advance tickets for our 21th anniversary Holiday House Tour, to be held on December 12, will go on sale in November. Tickets will be $25 at Woodbury Drug, Canfield Corner Pharmacy, Curtis House, Elizabeth Richard Gifts, Maison St. Germain Vintage, Woodbury Farm Market in Woodbury; Newbury Place in Southbury; Town Apothecary in Bethlehem; Roxbury Market in Roxbury; Hickory Stick Bookshop in Washington; The Village Restaurant in Litchfield; and at Yankee Quilters in Seymour.
Visitors may send a check made out to "The Woman's Club of Woodbury Holiday House Tour," along with a stamped self-addressed envelope to: The Woman's Club of Woodbury Holiday House Tour, P.O. Box 1014, Woodbury, CT, 06798. Please include a phone number.
The homes on the tour will be open for viewing from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Visitors will be asked to bring along slippers, since shoes cannot be worn in the homes. No photography will be allowed in the homes. In the event of inclement weather, there will be announcements on local radio stations; the tour will take place the following day at the same time, with “home base” at the Senior Center.
King Solomon's Lodge No. 7 and Masonic Temple
Main Street South
Formed in 1765 and chartered in 1970, King Solomon's Lodge No. 7 was born during the nation's revolutionary years. Many stories, including those iconic stairs, make this a rare-opportunity stop along the tour.
The house is a Royal Barry Wills designed Cape Cod. Royal Barry Wills was an American architect and master of the cape cod style house during the revival of colonial style homes from the 1930's to the 1950's. The current owners have been enhancing their home with hands-on improvements including custom built-ins.
