Preservation Worcester's Holiday Stroll back by popular demand

Worcester – Start the holiday season off on the right foot by partaking in Preservation Worcester's Holiday Stroll.? After a several year hiatus and by popular demand, the Holiday Stroll will be held Sunday, Dec. 2, from noon to 5 p.m., with some of Worcester's finest homes will be open to tour patrons.

Special events planned for several of the homes, and Bancroft Tower will be open with a Preservation Worcester docent on site to explain the architecture of the structure and the special relationship between Stephen Salisbury III and George Bancroft.? The Stroll, together with a fundraiser cocktail party scheduled to follow the event later that day at Whitcomb Hall, 51 Harvard St., Worcester, will benefit the work of Presentation Worcester.

For advance reservations, checks made payable to Preservation Worcester can be mailed to Preservation Worcester at 10 Cedar St., Worcester, MA 01609. Reservations can also be made via phone (charged to Visa, MasterCard or American Express) by calling 508-754-8760 or at www.preservationworcester.org. Tickets for the day of the event will be available at Preservation Worcester for the Stroll only, as the cocktail party requires advance reservations.

Advance reservations for the Holiday Stroll are $25 per person, while tickets purchased the day of the event are $30 each. Preservation Worcester Members will receive a $5 discount. To also attend the cocktail party, tickets are $40 per person and reservations are required.

Preservation Worcester is a private, not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to the preservation of the buildings and sites that represent the culture, history and architecture of Worcester.
