16th Framingham House Tour

Join us for a tour of the following sites:
  • A 1749 gambrel-style home fashioned after the Wayside Inn and owned by Henry Ford from 1932-1947
  • An artfully restored shingle-style bungalow in the Salem End Rd. neighborhood
  • A stately stone Italianate mansion built by an iron dealer who was one of Massachusetts’ richest men in 1851
  • A mid-century modern ranch refurbished by its master craftsman owner in a country setting
  • A charming cape-style cottage, that was once a stable for a nearby mansion, infused with the owner’s art
  • Don’t miss refreshments at a stunning new office space in a former Saxonville Mill warehouse with cutting-edge design incorporating the mill’s history.

This tour is the Framingham History Center’s largest fundraiser and all proceeds benefit our operations in support of our FHC’s mission. We are a non-profit 501c3 organization. We are not funded by the Town of Framingham and we are dependent on your participation in events like this, membership dues, donations and bequests. Thank you.
