Docents are available throughout each tour site to explain history, architectural features, and other pertinent details about the site. Tickets also gain you access to trolley rides and fire truck rides for children. Food and wine located at Bank Street and on the Hall House lawn are for sale by private businesses. Fast Track Tours – Again this year, you may move through homes at your own pace. If doing so, please stay in the back of the group so as not to disrupt the docent’s presentation.
