This year’s tour includes eight fascinating homes, some open to the public for the first time.
Hingham’s Historic House Tour is one of the oldest in the country. From modest capes to grand estates, the homes we showcase each year reveal the network of families, trade, marriage, work and worship that have over almost 400 years made Hingham an iconic England community. One of this year’s themes is the development of home heating technologies, and the tour includes a home of the future, with super energy efficient systems that are a far cry from the woodburning fireplaces that consumed New England’s woodland during the 18th century.
