Have you ever wanted to see behind the doors of some of the most interesting houses in Brookfield? Opportunity knocks with the upcoming Brookfield House Tour scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 12 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
As part of Brookfield's 225th anniversary celebrations, the tour will be sponsored by the Brookfield Women's Club. It includes a selection of seven homes, both historic and modern.
Among them are a former one-room schoolhouse; a home featured in four decorating magazine spreads; the former Tudor castle-style home of famed author, Joseph Hayes; and the home selected by Money magazine to represent Brookfield in its recent article about the top 100 places to live in the United States.
Tickets are $20. They will be sold during Brookfield Days on Saturday, Oct. 5, and can also be purchased in advance at the Park and Recreation and Town Clerk offices in Town Hall and Brookfield Library.
On the day of the tour, tickets will be sold at the starting point, the First Congregational Church, from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
