These popular tours showcase houses and other buildings of architectural and historic interest within the Landmark District and Mid-Hudson Valley. This tour, now in its 32nd year, is a staple of the autumn calendar and a “must-attend” event for many patrons who look forward to returning to the Hudson Valley each year to see old favorites and discover some previously hidden gems.
