Chestnut Hill Offering Tours Of Historic House To Raise Funds For Local Senior Center
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – An old historic home in Chestnut Hill has been re-designed for a good cause.
The two-and-a-half story stone Queen Ann home at 8305 Seminole Avenue has been transformed, and you can see it Wednesday through Sunday until October 16th.
Marilyn Paucker, the president of the Board of the Chestnut Hill Center for Enrichment, says it’s a way to raise money while enjoying some old time beauty.
“They will see an 1890 house with approximately 25 spaces or rooms that have been decorated by 25 of the area’s best and most fun decorators and landscape artists,” Paucker says.
Tickets are $25, and proceeds will help keep the center open so it can continue to provide social, educational and recreational activities for local seniors.
