Event Update: South Orange History Tour Date Moved

South Orange's biennial historic house tour is now scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 17th. 

The 'Gems of South Orange House Tour', which is organized by the South Orange Historical and Preservation Society (SOHPS), was originally scheduled for May. According to SOHPS president Karen Marlowe, the date was changed due to some homeowners being "unable to complete necessary repairs, touch-ups, and landscaping" because of the winter weather. 

Due to the new date, the deadline for tour home submissions has been extended. The SOHPS is looking for three additional homes to become part of the tour. Tour homes should feature architectural beauty, distinctiveness, historical significance, interiors, landscaping, or collections. To submit your home, call 908-577-7821 or send an email to laura.auer1@verizon.net.
