Behind Closed Doors Fall Home Tour –
Saturday, October 20, 2018
The 43rd annual Quincy Preserves “Operation Restoration” Fall Home Tour on Saturday, October 20th will be one not to miss.
Two of the must-see homes will soon be restored to their original majesty and grandeur. These mansions that are “under transformation” have been recently purchased by dedicated historical architecture enthusiasts. They are investing their money, time, and talents to restore these treasures to the condition they deserve. This is your chance to witness the beginning stages of these historic flips.

The remaining three “renovated and restored” homes are wonderful examples of preserved, architectural treasures. These homes are perfect illustrations of how you can lead a comfortable, modern life in a historical landmark.
