The Monroe Historical Society and the Save Our Stepney Task Force are reviving the annual Holiday House Tour, which will be held Saturday Dec. 10.

Six historic homes decorated for the holidays will open their doors along with two historic churches, St. Peter’s on the Green and Stepney Baptist. The Stepney section of town features a beautifully restored salt box rescued from demolition and an 1867 farmhouse.

A stop at the historic Stepney Baptist Church features a beautifully decorated sanctuary and the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary beverage and rest stop.

Traveling over to the Monroe Center section of town, four houses are featured: A 1760 Saltbox filled with antiques, 1820 Georgian Landmark built from local bricks, an 1810 Saltbox built on an earlier farmhouse foundation and a 1783 Greek Revival commonly referred to as the Old Bostwick School.

Finish up with a rest stop at St. Peter’s with complimentary beverages and a Christmas bazaar in the church basement. Hours are 1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m.

Tickets are $30 per person ($25 for 65 and older) and are available for purchase at the Edith Wheeler Memorial Library, the town clerk’s office, the Monroe Senior Center and Turning the Page Bookstore on Route 25 in the Clock Tower Plaza.
