Chestnut Hill Annual Christmas-Holiday House Tour Returns December 5th
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 Holiday House tour. Presented annually by the Chestnut Hill Community Association (CHCA), this year’s tour takes place on Saturday, December 5th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will feature five of the area’s loveliest historic homes decorated for the holidays, including a charming cottage, a stately stone colonial, a colonial revival, a second empire twin, and a Norman country house. Get into the Holiday Spirit with a day spent touring a variety of dramatic homes and find inspiration for your Holiday celebrations, while experiencing the rich architectural heritage of Chestnut Hill. View photos from last year! The tour is self-guided and attendees have the option of driving to the homes, or riding one of our special event trolleys.

The Christmas-Holiday House Tour supports the Chestnut Hill Community Association, which provides services through nearly every cross-section of the community, performed largely by volunteers whose care and commitment help keep Chestnut Hill a unique and wonderful place to live. Some of our efforts include publication of our award-winning weekly newspaper, the Chestnut Hill Local; supporting neighbors and businesses in development efforts as a Registered Community Organization with the City; and organizing the Pastorius Park Summer Concerts, the Black and White Gala, the Holiday House Tour, HOOPS Madness, and Friday Night Movies Under the Stars. In addition, we conduct a fund drive every year and allocate funds raised to CHCA programs and to nonprofit groups in our community that have the same vision for improving Chestnut Hill for our residents.
