Windham Hill United Church of Christ, located on Windham Center Road, is planning an local house tour to be held on Saturday, Oct. 8. Ten homes will be presented in the historic Windham Hill section of Windham, many of which are on the National Register of Historic Places. Some of the historical homes on the tour include the Great Falls Greek Revival built by Zebulon Trickey dating back to 1870 and the Parson Smith House dating to 1761. The tour will also include new homes that replicate or embrace early historical components.

Another home on the tour is the current parsonage at Windham Hill United Church of Christ. Once used as a boarding school and home to the first post office in Windham, this historic classic is a delightful way to begin or end the tour of homes that will both intrigue the history buffs and satisfy the curious. The church’s Meeting House, refurbished in the late 1990s, will also be open for inspection the day of the tour and offers a historical perspective of its own.

The tour will be held between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and includes a light lunch at the parsonage between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. A $20 donation for the tour is requested and descriptive brochures and directions may be picked up at the church on the day of the tour. Proceeds will benefit the Windham Hill United Church of Christ Capital Campaign for the renovation and addition to their Fellowship Hall. For additional information about the tour call 892-4948 or 892-4816.
