Holiday House Tour

Find inspiration for your holiday celebrations while experiencing the rich architectural heritage of Chestnut Hill

Philadelphia’s longest running holiday tour! The Holiday season is a time to relive cherished traditions, and for Chestnut Hill, there is no better tradition than spending a day enjoying the Christmas Holiday House tour. Our annual tour features the area’s loveliest historic homes decorated inside and out for the holidays. In recent years the tour included a charming cottage, a stately stone colonial, a three story Italianate Victorian, a second empire twin, and a Norman country house. Attendees have the option of riding our event trolley from stop to stop or visiting at their own pace in this self-guided tour. The tour is popular with both visitors and residents of Chestnut Hill, who come every year to discover a variety of dramatic homes while experiencing our neighborhood’s rich architectural heritage. This event is a major fundraiser for the Chestnut Hill Community Association and helps us provide services to our community throughout the year.


There is no better tradition than spending a day in Chestnut Hill at the Holiday House Tour. Visit six unique, beautifully decorated homes. Expect some surprises along the way–live musical performances, and holiday treats.
