As part of Pennington’s 125th Anniversary celebration this year, the Hopewell Valley Historical Society is sponsoring an historic house tour on Saturday, October 3, 2015. The tour, which takes place from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm, features some of a diverse group of some of Pennington’s most historically and architecturally significant homes.
The architectural diversity of houses on the tour is represented by eight houses dating from the late 18th century to the early 20th century. Over a half dozen architectural styles can be seen including the Federal style, most common in early Pennington, and later styles such as Greek Revival, Italianate, Colonial Revival, Craftsman, Queen Ann, Shingle, and American Four Square. As a bonus, tour goers can also visit the recently restored Gothic Revival Alumni House at the Pennington School and view the impressive Neo-Classical Sun National Bank building.
