Please join us for the 40th anniversary of the Winter House Tour and Boutique on Sunday,

December 11th, 11am-4pm. The houses are a variety of historic, remodeled and newly built in the West Falmouth area. New this year, ArtsFalmouth is sponsoring musicians who will perform at the library and the West Falmouth United Methodist Church, as well as two of the homes on the tour.

Bids for the Silent Auction are being accepted now through 4pm the day of the tour. Anyone can bid on auction items–you do not need a Winter House Tour ticket.

Admission includes the historic West Falmouth Library, where the boutique and auction will be held. Enjoy light refreshments and shop for handmade gifts, decorations, and fresh greens arrangements. Baked goods from West Falmouth Village Cafe will also be for sale. Note that a ticket is required for admittance to the boutique. This winter tradition is one of the library’s major annual fundraisers to support its community events and programs.

Tickets on sale now. $30 per ticket, $35 on the day of the tour. Tickets can be purchased at West Falmouth Library; Uncle Bill’s Country Store; Village Trading Company in Cataumet; Eight Cousins; Woods Hole Market; West Falmouth Market; New Wave Printing & Design, Inc.

The homes on the tour:

With sweeping views of Buzzards Bay, Mark Snyderman’s home at 428 Wild Harbor Road in North Falmouth is ideal for enjoying time on the water  (pianists from Melissa Harris Piano Studio in Sandwich will perform here from 1 to 3 PM).

The Mill House at 61 Nashawena Street in West Falmouth, owned by Joan Cribben, was originally the grain mill for the 1787 windmill in West Falmouth and is decorated with vintage pieces.

The home of Debbie and Giles Knight, located at 101 Old Dock Road on West Falmouth Harbor, was built in 2006 but was made to look old (Musical trio Guitar-Wedding will perform here starting at 2:15pm).
