Historic house tour

The Wallace House is an enduring stop on the annual Sherman Hill historic tour of homes. This year’s tour is one weekend only, September 29-30. Volunteers are needed at the Wallace House to greet visitors, check tickets, and share program info and Wallace family history. Shifts are 10 am – 1 pm and 1 pm – 4 pm. A free pass to tour other homes is a perk for volunteering. Please contact Deborah if you are interested.
