Advance ticket prices are $30 for Historical Society members and $40 for non-members.

Guests can then proceed through the tour in any order they choose. Be sure to stop by the Historical Society to hear a duet from the Salt Creek Chamber Orchestra perform.

Ticket prices increase by $5 on the day of the tour, and can be purchased at the Historical Society or the Emmanuel Episcopal Church.
