Candlelight House Tour of Keyport
Come enjoy a ride on an old fashioned trolley through the historic waterfront town of Keyport and visit home of all types, many of which will be decorated for the holidays. This year, we are featuring several homes that have never been on the tour and a few favorites from years past. You’ll get to meet the homeowners and discuss renovations they’ve made, collectables and family treasures they have, and hear about the history of each home. Plus, you’ll also get to experience our new museum.
Tour hours are from 2 PM to 7PM. These hours allow you to experience the home in both daylight and nighttime hours and shop, dine, and experience all that Keyport has to offer.
