LHS Spring House Tour 2012

A House Tour home from 2010.

The Larchmont Historical Society’s annual House Tour has become an eagerly anticipated “Rite of Spring.”  Please join the LHS for a lovely Saturday evening, May 19th, from 4-7pm, as we celebrate three fantastic Manor homes as well as unveil the newly restored Engine One, the 1922 American LaFrance fire engine that served Larchmont until 1948.  Returning to Larchmont after a three year restoration, Engine One gleams in its original colors of white with red trim and red wheels, refurbished engine and radiator panels.

This years’ tour will feature a grand 1880’s Queen Anne, a classic 1920’s waterside Colonial, and the gardens and porch of a turn of the century Victorian, where the restored Engine One will be on display. Engine One is Larchmont’s 1922 American LaFrance pumper. It has just returned from almost 3-year museum-quality restoration in Maine, re-creating its like-new appearance in 1922.

A reception will run concurrently with the house tour, from 4-7pm on the front porch of 14 Pryer Lane, the Victorian home where Engine One will proudly be unveiled.
